5. Boosting the Octane Number of Gasoline by Natural Gas Concentrated in Methane

Iqbal Iqbal Hossain

Articles in Press, Corrected Proof, Available Online from 19 December 2020

  Gasoline obtained from the fractionation of indigenous natural gas condensate has low octane number (78) and is therefore of limited uses. Lead-based octane boosting and catalytic reforming are not the viable methods for many fractionation plants. This study was therefore aimed to develop an inexpensive ...  Read More
