A preferred embodiment of a system for loading catalyst and/or additives into a fluidized catalytic cracking unit includes a bin for storing at least one of the catalyst and/or additives, and a loading unit in fluid communication with the storage bin and the fluidized catalytic cracking unit on a selective basis. The loading unit is capable of being evacuated so that a resulting vacuum within the loading unit draws the catalyst and/or additive from the bin. The loading unit is also capable of being pressurized so that the catalyst and/or additive is transferred from the loading unit to the fluidized catalytic cracking unit.

Compositions and methods of the present invention comprise the use of at least one alkoxylated fatty compound comprising at least one propylene oxide group, the alkoxylated fatty compound having a turbidity most preferably greater than 1000 NTU (as measured in a 0.2 weight percent aqueous solution) and carbon dispersing compound (e.g., lignosulfonate) to reduce carbon spotting in mortars and concretes containing a carbon-bearing fly ash having a methylene blue (MB) value of at least 1 mg/g or greater (as 10 determined according to ASTM C1777-13). The compositions may, for example, be combined as dry powder with the carbon-bearing fly ash where the fly ash is produced, or in aqueous liquid composition form, such as would be suitable for dispensing at a concrete ready-mix plant. Exemplary additive or admixture compositions may further comprise air entraining agents, alkanolamines, or both.

The process of this invention removes impurities from transesterification products comprising primarily fatty acid alkyl esters (FAAE) that are being processed for final fuel products, such as biodiesel. The inventive process is catalytic, and the resulting ester is suitable for use as biodiesel. Metal oxide and mixed metal oxide catalysts are particularly suitable. The invention is particularly suitable for treating fatty acid alkyl ester compositions comprising impurities such as glycerin, sterol glycosides, and/or triglyceride, diglyceride and/or monoglyceride. The invention is particularly useful in treating FAAE transesterification products made using homogeneous alkali catalysts. The treated ester exhibits improved performance under cold weather conditions, which can be measured by methods such as ASTM 7501 Cold Soak Filtration Test (CSFT).
