Heterogeneous Catalysis – Zeolites – Refinery Catalysis

In the refinery, heavy oil fractions are converted into clean fuels like gasoline and diesel, as well as petrochemical raw materials. The large oil molecules have to be cut up into smaller molecules, and impurities have to be removed. The image shows a typical large oil molecule. Carbon and Hydrogen are colored dark gray and white, respectively. The impurities are sulfur (yellow), nitrogen (blue) and oxygen (red). Cutting up of the large molecule is done in a cracking process (Fluid Catalytic Cracking), the impurities are removed by Hydroprocessing. Both processes use catalysts to improve the efficiency. The focus of my research is to improve these processes and catalysts.

Dr. Eelco T.C. Vogt (1961) earned his PhD. at Utrecht University in 1988, under the guidance of Prof. J.W. Geus (Inorganic Chemistry and Catalysis). His dissertation “The preparation and properties of catalysts supported on modified silica” earned the Royal Netherlands Chemical Society’s Catalysis Prize. Upon completion of his PhD., Dr. Vogt began working as a researcher at the catalysts business unit of Akzo Nobel. He worked on among others on HydroProcessing Catalysts, zeolites, and FCC Catalysts. From 1996 to 1999 he worked in Akzo Nobel’s research lab in Pasadena, near Houston, Texas. Akzo Nobel Catalysts was acquired by Albemarle Corporation in 2004. Dr. Vogt went on to become the corporation’s Global R&D Director Catalysts, and later was Director External Technology, Director Analytical Research and Quality, as well as R&D manager for Albemarle’s R&D center in Bergheim, Germany. For the past year, he has held the post of Distinguished Advisor, Catalysts R&D. He is currently president of the Industrial Advisory Board (VIRAN) of the Netherlands Institute for Catalysis Research (NIOK). Dr. Vogt has also served as a member of the Dijkgraaff Committee, which last year published the Vision Document “Chemistry & Physics: Fundamental for Our Future”.
