(154a) Minimizing CO2 production during Syngas Catalysis Mediated By Nano-Sized Iron Supported on Silica Spheres
- Conference: AIChE Spring Meeting and Global Congress on Process Safety
- Year: 2019
- Proceeding: 2019 Spring Meeting and 15th Global Congress on Process Safety
- Group: 19th Topical Conference on Gas Utilization
- Time: Wednesday, April 3, 2019 - 8:00am-8:25am
The presentation will first focus on key steps of the core-shell nano-sized material synthesis and its characterization using a suite of spectroscopic techniques including Transmission Electron Microscopy and Raman. Then, its perfornace under F-T synthesis reaction will be discussed for CO2 minimization relative to desired hydrocarbon products, thus enhancing overall carbon conversion. We will present morphology and structural characterization data and full mass balance by analyzing gas and liquid products of each run. A relationship between structural properties and reaction parameters to achieve low CO2 or non-CO2 production scenarios will be discussed.
