A SAPO-34 catalyst is well known to be one of the best catalysts for DME to olefins (DTO) reaction. Main products of the reaction were light olefins such as ethylene, propylene and butenes. However, the main problem is rapid deactivation of the SAPO-34 catalyst due to coke deposition during DTO reaction. In this study, various SAPO-34/ZrO2 catalysts added with ZrO2 were prepared for improving the lifetime and their physicochemical properties have been characterized by XRD and SEM. The DTO reaction over various SAPO-34/ZrO2 catalysts was carried out using a fixed bed reactor. All SAPO-34/ZrO2 catalysts showed similar activity and selectivity in the DTO reaction. The SAPO-34(9wt%)/ZrO2 catalyst was showed the best performance for the catalyst lifetime.
