Investigation of Catalytic Hydrocracking of Fischer-Tropsch Wax for the Production of Transportation Fuels By M. OLSCHAR, M. ENDISCH, TH. DIMMIG and TH. KUCHLING* Abstract The Fischer-Tropsch synthesis allows the production of high quality diesel fuel from biomass derived synthesis gas. Unfortunately, the diesel yield of the synthesis step is restricted, since the synthesis is non-selective. To increase the overall diesel yield, the Fischer-Tropsch synthesis can be operated in a high-wax mode with subsequent hydrocracking of the long-chained n-paraffins to the desired fuel....
