US Patent No. : US20140081063A1
This patent related to a process for effective conversion of bioethanol into gasoline rich in aromatics and iso-paraffins using a ZSM-5 type zeolite with special features such as nano crystalline size and acidity. The product measures Research Octane Number (RON) of about 95, which is desirable for the gasoline specifications. Moreover, considerable amounts of the Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) (15 wt %) and light olefins (14 wt %) are also formed as by-products that add value to the process.
