What is it about?
In this paper, we have presented a new two-step process for the upgrading of refinery fuel oil. The first step involved a primary pyrolysis of the heavy feedstock, and the second one involves catalytic cracking of the cracked oil using a novel hierarchical catalyst.

Why is it important?
The annual production of fuel oil in the conventional refineries is increasing. Modern technologies are moving toward petrorefineries in which the tapping and distillation are combined with the reactions not only to rearrange the products but also to make lighter products of higher demand and thus higher values.
