Vacuum Gas Oils (VGO) are heavy petroleum cuts (boiling points ranging from 350 to 550 ˚C) that can be transformed into valuable fuels (gasolines, diesels) by fluid catalytic cracking or hydrocracking. Prior to these conversion processes, hydrotreating is required in order to eliminate the impurities in VGOs. The hydrotreatment process enables to meet the environmental specifications (total sulfur contents) and to prevent nitrogen poisoning of conversion catalysts. In order to develop a kinetic model based on an accurate VGOs molecular description, innovative analytical tools and molecular reconstruction techniques were used in this work. A lumped model using a ...
