Abstract This paper proposes a simple methodology for simulation of equilibrium FCC catalyst (e-cat) performance, employing techniques such as metal impregnation followed by hydrothermal deactivation and laboratory catalyst evaluation. The laboratory evaluation of samples deactivated under different conditions including the e-cat were used in an optimization algorithm, to determine the mixture that best mi overall e-cat performance in terms of activity and main product yields. The proposed methodology may be used in order to establish a specific deactivation protocol for any particular FCC unit.
