Applications of ionic liquids in the removal of contaminants from refinery feedstocks: an industrial perspective

Author affiliations

Abstract

The purpose of this review is to provide appropriate details concerning the applications of ionic liquids for the removal of pollutants from refinery feedstocks, like sulfur-, nitrogen- and fluor-containing compounds, aromatics, naphthenic acids and asphaltenes. Furthermore, critical considerations surrounding the problems and challenges associated with the application of these technologies in the petroleum industry are discussed.
