Sulfur containing compounds are one of the most common contaminants in hydrocarbons. It must be mentioned even a trace amount of these compounds can cause different problems such as corrosion, reducing process efficiency, environmental hazards & undesirable side reactions.
Niroonamad adsorptive desulfurization technology (ADS) is a promising and economical method with regard to energy consumption, because the adsorption process can be achieved at ambient pressure, temperature and without use of any expensive hydrogen as well as catalyst. This method relies on surfer’s compounds absorption & does not require hydrogen. In the adsorption process, the adsorbents used in the process selectively grab the sulfur.
The removal of sulfur from transportation fuel and petrochemicals is gaining more attention due to the increased awareness of the adverse effects of burning sulfur containing oils on human health and the environment. Furthermore, these compounds also cause corrosion & deactivation of the catalysts.
