Reactor for Conversion of Syngas to Liquid Hydrocarbons


The recent rise in crude oil price forces us to look for alternative energy sources. The most sensible direction of this search is natural gas upgrading to liquid hydrocarbons via a mixture of carbon monoxide and hydrogen (syngas). Hydrogenation of CO to liquid hydrocarbons has been known since 1923 as Fischer-Tropsch synthesis (FTS). Great R&D efforts have… (More)
