A Method To Synthesize Hydrocarbons From Gases Containing Organic Sulfides
The known processes for hydrocarbon synthesis from sulfide-impure gases in the presence of cobalt, nickel and iron catalysts require thorough cleanup of the gases not only from hydrogen sulfide but from organic sulfides as well. The maximum permissible content of sulfur in the feed stream is equal to 2 mg/m3. The method is suggested, in which an iron-cobalt catalyst with the additives of hard-to-reduce metal (aluminum, zinc, manganese, etc.) oxides is used in order to exclude the necessity for preliminary sulfides’ removal from the feed.
