Rare earth is an essential element in today's FCC catalyst technologies, supplying increased activity, improved gasoline yields, and oxidation function in SOx additives. Cat-Aid and Super SOxGetter-II additive technology as catalyst additives for reducing rare earth cost are presented. Guidelines for the FCC operator are presented, enabling the most effective application of these two technologies. Best available technology related to the injection of these additives into the circulating inventory are described.


Collection enhanced materials, flue gas additives, and methods of making the enhanced materials and flue gas additives are provided. In one embodiment, a down stream addition system configured to control material passing through a metering device from a vessel to a gaseous exhaust path extending between a unit and an exhaust flue of the unit is provided. In alternative embodiments, methods are provided for introducing at least one of a flue gas additive and a collection enhanced material to a gaseous exhaust stream exiting a unit; exposing and removing at least a portion of at least one a of flue gas additive and a collection enhanced material from a gaseous exhaust stream exiting a unit prior to entering an exhaust flue; and recycling at least a portion of material removed a from a gaseous exhaust stream exiting a unit back to the gaseous exhaust stream without passing through the unit.


Collection enhanced materials, down stream additives, and methods of making the enhanced materials and down stream additives are provided. In one embodiment, a down stream additive is provided that includes an active phase component and at least one of a collection enhancing component. In other embodiments, the down stream additive may have attrition index from about two (2) to about ten (10) and/or an average diameter from about 20 m to about 60 m. In other embodiments, the down stream additive may have an active phase component which is incompatible with a process performed in an FCC unit. In yet another embodiment, a collection enhanced material having an average diameter from about 60 m to about 300 m is provided that includes an active component and a collection enhancing component.

The invention is a multi-catalyst injection system. In one embodiment, the system comprises a vessel suitable for storing fluid cracking catalyst and having a separator defining at least two compartments within the vessel. A plenum is defined in the vessel and is fluidly coupled to each of the compartments. A plurality of dispense mechanisms are respectively coupled to a respective compartment to control the flow of catalyst from the injection system.

The invention includes a process for reducing the amount of HCN discharged to atmosphere from a FCC unit, having a regenerator and a means for collecting and supporting catalyst particles. The process comprises adding a catalyst to the regenerator flue gas prior to entering the collecting means and precipitating the catalyst in the collecting means to form a catalyst bed. Ammonia or ammonia precursor is optionally added to the flue gas. The flue gas HCN is reacted in the presence of water and oxygen in the flue gas, and optional ammonia or ammonia precursor, at 200 C. to 800 C. in the presence of the catalyst bed to reduce the HCN amount, and the flue gas containing a reduced amount of HCN is discharged to atmosphere. The catalyst is one or more supported transition or lanthanide metal catalysts. The process can also be utilized in any combustion process.

The invention includes a process for reducing the amount of NO_(x )discharged to atmosphere from a FCC unit, having a regenerator and a means for collecting and supporting catalyst particles. The process comprises adding a catalyst to the regenerator flue gas prior to entering the collecting means and precipitating the catalyst in the collecting means to form a catalyst bed. Ammonia or ammonia precursor is added to the flue gas prior to and/or within the collecting means. The flue gas NO_(x )is reacted with the ammonia or ammonia precursor at 200 C. to 800 C. in the presence of the catalyst bed to reduce the NO_(x )amount, and the flue gas containing a reduced amount of NO_(x )is discharged to atmosphere. The catalyst is one or more supported transition or lanthanide metal catalysts. The process can also be utilized in any combustion process.
