Twenty five years of research experience in the development of catalysts for petroleum refining processes like hydro desulfurization, reforming and FCC. Being a team member of sponsored/in-house projects we have optimized catalyst preparation parameters for each project requirement, which shall be useful to achieve the desired targets. Presently working on GTL processes for conversion of syn gas feedstock’s to middle distillates by FT synthesis and fuels. Extensive experience in heterogeneous catalysts preparation, physico-chemical characterization and screening in high pressure fixed bed reactors.
