Attrition resistant bulk iron catalysts and processes for preparing and using same
An attrition resistant precipitated bulk iron catalyst is
prepared from iron oxide precursor and a binder by spray drying.
The catalysts are preferably used in carbon monoxide hydrogenation
processes such as Fischer-Tropsch synthesis. These catalysts are
suitable for use in fluidized-bed reactors, transport reactors and,
especially, slurry bubble column reactors.
