Abstract

A method for preparation of a spherical alumina support with preset porous structure for a catalyst of benzene alkylation with ethylene has been developed. The process of the support manufacture has been adjusted in a pilot installation, and an industrial installation for production of alumina support for the alkylation catalyst has been designed and built at the Shevchenko Plastics Plant (Aktau, Kazakhstan).
