Fischer-Tropsch synthesis (FTS) with cobalt-based catalyst has been developed to produce wax as a feedstock for further catalytic cracking. During catalyst preparation, NH4OH was added to the salt nitrate precursor to investigate the influence on catalyst acidity. Catalysts were prepared by the dry impregnation method and characterized by XRD, BET and NH3-TPD analyses. These properties were correlated with activity and selectivity of the catalyst. Activity tests showed CO and H2 conversion were in the range of 36.4% to 80.3% and 34.2% to 74.1% respectively. The cobalt particle size measurements exhibited 7.6-8.5 nm. The presence of weak acid sites on catalyst with large surface area and pore size is mainly responsible for obtaining high yields of C5+ hydrocarbon due to suppression of cracking properties. The product distribution showed a higher selectivity to C5+ in the range of 53.57% to 96.5%. In this study, FTS was evaluated by using fixed-bed reactor at 20 bar, 250 C, and WHSV of 1500 ml/g.cat/h-1.
