Abstract:

A supported silver adsorbent AgTi02 for sulfur removal from liquid fuels has been developed and characterized. The adsorbents formulation, preparation procedure, desulfurization conditions and regeneration procedure have established and optimized. In a comparative study, this adsorbent and several other promising adsorbents such as Cu-Y and, AgAl203 and PdCI2Al203 have been tested and evaluated with model fuels and logistic fuel i.e. JP-5. It is found that AgTi02 demonstrated a high saturation capacity of 15 mg of sulfurg of adsorbent, and that no special regeneration media or reactivation procedures are required for its regeneration. This high-performance adsorbent enables novel process design for the logistic fuel desulfurization.
