A.K. Sinha, M. Anand and S.A. Farooqui,    CSIR – Indian Institute of Petroleum, Dehradun, Uttarakhand, India

Abstract

Hydroprocessing routes to producing alternative aviation fuels have become a well-established technology, though not yet cost-competitive due to the higher cost of animal- and plant-derived triglycerides/lipids. This chapter describes academic and technological advances for the processing of lipids obtained from various sources via hydroprocessing routes to produce biofuels. The effect of different catalytic systems, operating parameters, reaction pathways, and kinetics involved in the hydroprocessing of lipids is also described. Among different catalysts reported and discussed, ...
