|Researchers at Purdue University have discovered a method to convert olefins to gasoline and diesel fuels at higher rates and yields than is currently possible. Some geographical regions
do not have a robust chemical industry but are rich in shale gas reserves, so this method provides an opportunity for local fuel production. The gas phase reaction results in little methane or
coking and can run for many days without significant loss of conversion. The method does not require harsh reaction conditions; effective conversion occurs at pressures between ambient and 45 bar and above 200 degrees Celsius.
Technology Validation: The gas phase reaction results in little methane or coking and can run for many days without significant loss of conversion.
