Through the increasing role of renewable fuels in our daily lives their production and their improvement is a necessary step. Fischer-Tropsch synthesis based on renewable resources is one way to achieve this. The upgrading of its intermediates, known as Fischer-Tropsch waxes (FTW) can help to increase the economic viability of such a process by converting the waxes to pharmaceutical products or high value fuel additives. For each desired product regulations have to be reached (European Pharmacopoeia), certain benchmarks must be fulfilled, this ranges from viscosity to boiling point to the degree of isomerisation and the amount of byproducts in the mixtures. Especially aromatic components can pose a problem for pharmaceutical usage of the waxes. In this paper, the conversion of FTW via hydroprocessing
was investigated, using a semi batch stirred-tank reactor. The focus lies on the conversion, the successiveness of the occurring reactions, the isomer content and the amount of formed aromatic compounds.
