Alternative feedstocks in hydrocarbon technologies in the production of ecological fuels and petrochemicals.Supervisor: prof. Ing. Martin Bajus, DrSc.
This page shows details on the project. The primary projects are displayed together with a list of sub-projects.
|Project description:||The subject of the scientific project is the study of reaction kinetics and mechanism of the thermal and catalytic transformations of the alternative feedstocks over heterogeneous catalysts in hydrocarbon technologies (pyrolysis, catalytic cracking) by chemical recycling of waste polyethylene and polypropylene polymers to desired alkenes and additives to asphalts; pyrolysis of used tyres; the utilization of glycerol as an alternative feedstock of biogenic origin by etherification with C4-fraction to ethers of glycerol suitable as oxygenate additives to diesel fuels; the study of shape- selective alkylation of aromatic hydrocarbons and their derivatives with the aim to prepare desired organic intermediates.|
