Abstract (en)

[origin: WO2018029601A1] The present disclosure provides a process for reducing oxygenate content of hydrocarbon feed. The process comprises passing and heating the hydrocarbon feed over ion exchange resin resident in a reactor, maintained at a temperature in the range of 90 to 140 °C and a predetermined pressure, at a predetermined liquid hourly space velocity to obtain a heated intermediate fluid. The heated intermediate fluid is cooled to obtain a cooled intermediate fluid. The cooled intermediate fluid is mixed with water to obtain a mixture. The mixture is allowed to settle to obtain an aqueous phase and an organic phase. The aqueous phase is separated from the organic phase to obtain hydrocarbon feed with reduced oxygenate content. The process is simple and environment friendly, enabling removal of 70-90% of the oxygenate content from the hydrocarbon feed.
