Traditionally, sulfur removal has been accomplished through hydrotreating. Treating lighter portions of the FCC stream can, however, result in hydrogenation and resultant octane loss. By overcoming the conflicting goals of sulfur removal and olefin retention, Fuels Technology developed a more selective process that can economically and efficiently produce low sulfur gasoline.
