Kinetic studies on the reduction of Ramsbottom carbon residue (RCR), Conradson carbon residue (CCR) and the viscosity of the atmospheric residue derived from the Greek well Thasos have been made. Hydrodesulphurization experiments were carried out over a commercial Co-Mo/Al2O3 catalyst at temperatures of 623, 653, 678, 708 and 738 K and a pressure of 5.0 MPa, in a continous flow trickle bed reactor. First order kinetic equations were found to describe well the reduction rates of carbon residue and the viscosity of the oil. The activation energies for RCR, CCR and viscosity reduction were found to be 77.0, 79.1 and 97.5 kJ/mol, respectively. © 1991. (EN)
