Abstract

In Fischer-Tropsch Synthesis, because of few reactants ($H_2$, CO), scarce operating parameters affected on efficiency especially the selectivity of products. In this research, effect of operating parameters on the selectivity of Co-Mn-$TiO_2$ Fischer-Tropsch synthesis catalyst were studied by design of experimental procedure and Taguchi method. According to this research, interactions between operating factors have a crucial effect on light products selectivity. Among these interactions, (temperature${\times}$feed ratio) has the main influence on light hydrocarbons selectivity. It was concluded that temperature and feed ratio ($H_2$/CO) were the most integral operating parameters for much greater selectivity of light hydrocarbons.
