It was initially developed for strategic reasons because it offered a source of transportation fuels that was independent from crude oil. Unlike crude, Fischer-Tropsch synthetic crude is rich in olefins and oxygenates, while being sulphur and nitrogen free. Consequently, the catalysis involved in refining it is significantly different and only a few catalysts have been developed for the purpose.
Until now, an account of this topic has been missing from the literature, despite mounting interest in the technology. This is the first book to provide a review and analysis of the literature journal and patent on the catalysis needed to refine syncrude to transportation fuels. It specifically highlights the impact of oxygenates and how oxygenates affect selectivity and deactivation. This aspect is also related to the refining of biomass derived liquids. He has been registered as a professional engineer in South Africa since His career started in forensic science before moving to industry in where his work was mainly in catalysis, catalyst evaluation and the refining of Fischer-Tropsch syncrude and coal liquids.
He managed the Fischer-Tropsch refinery catalysis group of Sasol from until before moving to the University of Alberta Department of Chemical and Materials Engineering. He is author of around 50 scholarly papers, most of which dealt with Fischer-Tropsch refining and refining catalysis. Edward Furimsky has some forty years of research experience in the conversion of petroleum, coal and natural gas to various commercial products.
His studies have included the upgrading of petroleum feeds, environmental and safety aspects, options for using spent refinery catalysts, quantification of emissions, and the optimization of refining schemes to lower overall emissions. He is also is also the author of two books, several book chapters, journal articles, and a dozen reviews. Jump to main content. Jump to site search. Journals Books Databases. Search Advanced.

Catalysis in the Refining of Fischer-Tropsch Syncrude
Platinum Metals Rev. Written by Arno de Klerk and Edward Furimsky from the University of Alberta and the IMAF group in Ontario, Canada, respectively, this book provides a review of the somewhat neglected area of refining and upgrading catalysts, rather than the more widely published area of Fischer-Tropsch synthesis itself 1. This book provides an excellent and comprehensive evaluation of the catalytic processes for syncrude conversion to useful products such as fuel and oils. The book consists of eleven chapters, which are well presented and divided into easily manageable segments.
