Theoretical Investigations of Methane Conversion to Heavier Hydrocarbons in a Plasma Reactor

In this study, mathematical modeling of Oxidative Coupling of Methane (OCM) to C2 hydrocarbons (C2H6 and C2H4) over La2O3/CaO catalyst in a fixed-bed reactor operated under isothermal and non-isothermal conditions was investigated. The kinetic model proposed for OCM process consisted of 10 elementary reactions and 8 chemical species. In this process, methane and acetylene were the inputted feed and ethane, ethylene, propylene, propane, i- butane and n-butane were the output products. The amount of methane conversion obtained was 12.7% for the former feed, however, if pure methane was inputted this conversion rose to 13.8%. Furthermore, the plasma process would enhance the conversion, selectivity towards desired product and yield. In the present study, when methane.
