Abstract : The production of high density aviation fuels from reliable, domestic fossil fuel sources is of considerable importance to the United States Air Force. The production of high density aviation fuels can be achieved by a number of alternative process sequences, for example, shape selective cracking of normal paraffins from an appropriate boiling range fraction of a napthenic crude; saturation of an aromatic FCC cycle stock of the appropriate boiling range; saturation of an appropriate boiling range fraction from a hydrocracker recycle stream when the feed to the hydrotreater is aromatic in nature; synthesis of the appropriate boiling range aromatic species from oxygenates over crystalline aluminosilicates followed by hydrogenation of the aromatic species; and direct synthesis of the aromatic hydrocarbons from hydrogen and carbon monoxide over crystalline aluminosilicate-supported metal catalysis followed by hydrogenation of the aromatic species. This report summarizes a research program aimed at developing catalyst and processing concepts for the production of high density aviation turbine fuels via novel zeolite catalyst routes.
