Abstract

The effect of operating conditions i.e. temperature, feed composition, and catalyst loading on the reaction of a mixture of methane and ethylene to produce C5+ hydrocarbons was investigated by employing the design of experiment. A central composite design combined with response surface methodology was used to determine the optimum operating condition on the production of C5+ hydrocarbons from a mixture of methane and ethylene. A mathematical model that is able to predict the effect of independent variables towards the responses i.e. the selectivity to C5+ hydrocarbons product was established by multiple regression analysis. The reaction of a mixture of methane and ethylene into higher molecular hydrocarbons products was carried out in a fixed bed micro-reactor over W/HZSM-5 catalyst. Analysis of variance was used to determine the adequacy between the model and experimental value.
