Of the FT-products the C sub 2 /C sub 4 olefins are important raw materials for the chemical industries, but so far made out of crude oil.  It is intended to increase the yield of C sub 2 /C sub 4 olefins by using new catalysts and by variation of reaction conditions. The preferred equipment are liquid-phase vessels which run almost isothermally. Sasol and Ruhrchemie catalysts have been tested, also iron-whisker and iron-manganese. The C sub 2 /C sub 4 yield so far has been increased from less than 40 g to more than 60 g/m exp 3 (V/sub n/) H sub 2 + Co. The trials will be continued. (ERA citation 05:033197)
