Gas to liquids

GTL (gas to liquid) is a renery process that transforms liquid transportation fuels from gaseous fossil fuels.
The process of transforming gas into liquids (GTLs) is mainly controlled by the Fisher-Tropsch synthesis. This
process chemically converts natural gas to liquids (GTL), producing a natural gas-derived, clean-burning, diesel
fuel. Because the products are colorless, odorless hydrocarbons with very little impurity, the GTL process converts
natural gas into exceptionally clean diesel fuel. Adding to its importance on the environmental side, reneries can
also use GTL to convert some of their gaseous hydrocarbon waste products into valuable fuel oil which can be used
to generate more valuable income.
The Fisher-Tropsch synthesis consists of three main technologies that will systematically transform our natural gas
into liquid biofuel:
1) the production of syngas (mainly CO and H2) from natural gas.
2) the catalytic (F-T) synthesis, where syngas is transformed into long-chained paran.
3) Cracking, where produced molecules are cracked to come up with useful down-products (generally produced
molecules come in the C5-C12 “Naphtha” range).

Solutions Overview: Sectors we can tackle



A refinery is a manufacturing facility that consists of a collection of chemical engineering unit processes and unit activities that refine materials or turn raw materials into valuable products.
