Presentation by: Freek Kapteijn (TU Delft, Catalysis Engineering)
In this presentation Kapteijn showed the results of a modelling study of the influence of the inhibition by the H2S in catalytic hydrotreating (HDS) when operating in co-current and when operating in countercurrent mode. If H2S inhibition is strong countercurrent operation is particularly advantageous at high conversion. If the H2S inhibition is small, co-current operation is preferred when mass transfer is slow and counter-current when the mass transfer is fast. Additionally, Kapteijn explained in the introduction of this presentation the differences between stripping and reactive distillation.
