Abstract:

An overall optimization study involving computer modeling of shale upgrading was performed in Phase IV. This study utilized the analytical and experimental data from Phase I, II, and III of the program. Computer modeling of the process was used to define an economic optimum configuration. The economic and yield trade-offs of producing either JP-4 or JP-8 aviation turbine fuels as the primary products were evaluated, along with a detailed analysis of the experimental data and definition of remaining problems.
