A novel FCC process has been developed and tested on an industrial scale dual-riser FCC unit. The process is based on the Two-stage-riser catalytic cracking for Maximizing Propylene yield (TMP) process. The effectiveness of the new developed multi-regime reactor has been experimentally and numerically proved. The differences in flow field and phase distributions in favor of the novel reactor compared to the traditional ones are highlighted. The numerical findings agree well with test run results of a real industrial unit. The superiority of the novel process over other catalytic cracking/pyrolysis process is demonstrated. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the 2011 AIChE Annual Meeting (Minneapolis, MN 10/16-21/2011).
