Center of Excellence for Petrochemicals (KOPRC)
KACST and the University of Oxford have created a joint research center called KACST – Oxford Petrochemical Research Centre (KOPRC). This joint scientific cooperation between KACST and the University of Oxford is the first of its type in the Arab world in the refining and petrochemical fields and comes within the strategic plan set by KACST.
The collaboration is hoping to do the following:
This project is focused on the preparation of a novel catalyst for LPG and C6/C7 paraffins aromatization under non-oxidative conditions
In an age where many of the items used on a daily basis are produced
In this paper, we discuss the potential of using microwave techniques in the refinement of heavy fraction of petroleums such as bunker oil.
In this work, a selective catalyst of BXE ALKCAT zeolite has been developed with about 30 % of ZSM-5
Heterogeneous catalysts are not only a venerable part of our chemical and industrial heritage, but they also occupy a pivotal,
