New GTL based on low temperature CPO - LTCPO-GTL

Project ID: ENK6-CT-2002-00682
Funded under: FP5-EESD


The general objective of this project aimed to reduce pollutant emissions by developing an advanced and innovative process to produce clean transport fuels precursors coupling low temperature autothermal catalytic oxidation of natural gas and an advanced Fischer-Tropsch reaction system. The main R&D objectives in the syngas production were the development of improved catalysts and the application of chemical reaction engineering advanced concepts to design a new reaction system with optimal methane conversion, catalyst stability and heat management. The main R&D objectives in the Fischer-Tropsch synthesis step were the development of improved catalysts using modified supports and the design and testing of a continuous dewatering selective membrane module to be included in the FT reaction system to increase the conversion of syngas to hydrocarbons.
