Abstract

The Fischer–Tropsch synthesis of lower olefins (FTO) is an alternative process for the production of major chemical building blocks from natural gas, coal, or biomass-derived synthesis gas. The addition of low concentrations of sulfur plus sodium to Fe/a-Al2O3 resulted in catalysts with high C2–C4 olefins selectivity (~50%C), enhanced catalytic activity, and decreased methane production (
