Cobalt-based Nanoreactors in Combined Fischer-Tropsch Synthesis and Hydroprocessing: Effects on Methane and CO$_{2}$ Selectivity

Straß-Eifert, A.; Sheppard, T. L.; Becker, H.; Friedland, J.; Zimina, A.; Grunwaldt, J.-D.; Güttel, R.

Fischer-Tropsch synthesis: Four types of bi-functional catalysts with cobalt nanoparticles supported on meso- or microporous silicates or aluminosilicates are investigated regarding the obtained CO$_{2}$ and CH$_{4l}$ selectivity under low-temperature Fischer-Tropsch reaction conditions. In situ x-ray absorption spectroscopy results under industrially relevant conditions reveal that strong cobalt-support interactions and oxidized cobalt species are the main factors determining the selectivity depending on the specific support material used.

The production of liquid hydrocarbons from syngas (CO and H$_{2}$) via the combined Fischer-Tropsch (FT) synthesis and hydroprocessing (HP) is a promising strategy to provide valuable chemicals and fuels based on renewable feedstocks. High yields of liquid products are essential for industrial implementation since short-chain side products like methane and CO$_{2}$ reduce the overall carbon efficiency, which holds true especially for bi-functional Co/zeolite catalysts. In order to investigate the influence of the support material properties on the methane and CO$_{2}$ selectivities in the combined FT and HP reaction, we synthesized four well-defined catalyst materials with similar cobalt particle sizes. ... mehr
