Activated Carbon Supported Iron Catalyst for the Fischer-Tropsch Synthesis
The application of activated carbon (AC) supported Fe-Cu-K catalyst for Fischer-Tropsch synthesis (FTS) is studied. The catalyst prepared using the AC as support showed remarkably improvement of reaction performance. The improvement of the reaction performance obtained for the AC is probably ascribed to the physical structure and surface chemistry of AC. The support and corresponding catalyst are characterized by N2 adsorption. Catalytic performance of the catalyst during FT synthesis was excellent. Syngas conversion was about 74%, whereas methane selectivity was low (~2 %).
