Industrial hydroprocessing applications rely on the continuous operation of catalysts for time periods on a scale of years. In consequence, catalyst selection for such applications is the result of intricate evaluation processes as this decision will impact profitability for the whole operational life cycle. The catalyst needs to operate in a certain window of activity and to give a desired spectrum of product selectivities and qualities, and it must meet these performance criteria while maximising the length of the life cycle.
