Abstract

Converting light olefin (C2 & C3) by oligomerization to jet fuel may have some promising prospect, as the light olefin is relatively easy to be produced from a variety of feeds . The present paper reports our current approach to explore the possibility of converting ethylene to liquid hydrocarbons by oligomerization over the developed zeolite-based catalyst for producing JP-8. The results showed that liquid hydrocarbon product yield of 64% was obtained on OC-12 catalyst, of which 70 wt % was in the JP-8 boiling range. Further characterization of the liquid hydrocarbon product by using 1H NMR showed that the major group compositions in the oligomers are paraffin and olefin, being 43 and 45 wt %, respectively. The olefin concentration in the oligomers needs to be further reduced to meet the requirement of JP-8.
