A synthetic gas rig is employed to characterize the chemical kinetic behavior of individual species reactions within the catalyst, enabling a comparison between a fresh Iron-Zeolite (Fe-Z) based muffer and one that has undergone healthy aging in the field for approximately 376,000 miles, which represents ninety percent of its rated useful life.
6 billion in an integrated gasification combined cycle (IGCC) project that will convert captive petrocoke to synthetic gas (syngas) which can be used to generate power, steam and hydrogen, which currently are being produced using expensive imported LNG, said the NDTV quoting a Barclays Equity Research report.
Beijing -- Sinopec is pushing ahead with plans to build China's largest plant to convert coal into synthetic gas, shaking off worries the $10 billion scheme could be hit by cost overruns that have dogged similar projects.
The new power plant will use integrated gasification combined cycle (IGCC) technology to convert vacuum residue fuel from the refinery into a synthetic gas.
The site, at the former Burn House Rendering facility to the west of Lisburn, will turn garbage into power through the "gasification process which heats the waste to produce a synthetic gas fuel which in turn is used to produce steam which is used to create electricity".
The project is part of Turkey's efforts to be freed of soaring import dependency rises, with shale gas reserve searches and synthetic gas production also accelerating.
The Micro Auto Gasification System disposes of solid waste through a process of pyrolysis, where trash is reduced to a synthetic gas which is then used to power the MAG system.
Mongolia is deficient in the local production of oil and gas, relying heavily on imported fuels from China and Russia, hence the conversion of UCG synthetic gas or syngas into transport fuels, is a significant longer term objective,' the Cougar Energy CEO said.
