Nanotechnology Center Manufactured  a Pilot Plant to improve gasoline fuel specifications using  Modified Nanocatalysts

In the light of scientific openness witnessed nanotechnology and advanced materials research center at the University of Technology on all sectors and on oil and gas sector in special case,  and under   supervision of  the director of the center (Prof. Dr. Adawya J. Haider) has been manufacturing pilot system to improve the specification fuel gasoline using modified nanocatalysts  with  operational pressures up 30 bar.

On the other hand, the head of the scientific team specialist oil and gas projects in the center, (Asst. Prof. Dr. Khalid A. Sukkar) explained that the use of nanotechnology in the preparation of catalysts has become one of the important scientific issues that result in a fuel with a high specification due to the holdings of these cofactors of high surface area and productivity as well as quality-of-life term. Also, Dr. Sukkar said that modern oil refineries in the world have expanded the use of nanotechnology applications in most unit operation. And the  construction of the present pilot plant at the center will improve  the hydroisomerization  and catalytic reforming processes operation with new catalysts. Then,  gasoline specifications and production will improved. So such projects are important in  oil refineries in to promote economic and productive capacity in the Iraqi refineries.
