The Hydrodesulfurization Catalysts Market is projected to register a CAGR of over 4% during the forecast period, 2020–2028, with North America being the leading regional market.
Hydrodesulfurization, one of the most important processes in the oil refining industry, is a catalytic chemical process used to reduce pollutants in the fraction of petroleum distillates. It is widely used to remove sulfurfrom natural gas and refined petroleum products such as gasoline, diesel fuel, jet fuel, kerosene, and fuel oils. The catalysts used in this process are Hydrodesulfurization Catalysts Market. Crude oil contains a complex mixture of sulfur compounds, such as sulfides, disulfides, and thiols. The industrial hydrodesulfurization processes include facilities for capturing and removing the hydrogen sulfide (H2S) gas formed after the reaction of sulfur gases with hydrodesulfurization catalysts. In petroleum refineries, hydrogen sulfide gas is subsequently converted into byproduct elemental sulfur or sulfuric acid (H2SO4).
The purpose of removing the sulfur from these fuel oils and natural gas is to reduce the sulfur dioxide emissionsresulting fromseveral combustions. In the catalystic reforming units, the removal of sulfur is important as it can poisons the noble metal catalysts such as rhenium and platinum, evn at low concentrations. These are subsequently used to upgrading the octane rating of the naphtha streams. Damage to these precious metal catalysts can severely impact the process and leading tohigh costs.
