Technip said the reformers project would be carried out by its operational centre at Zoetermeer in The Netherlands, a centre of excellence for hydrogen and syngas technology .
Together with our project partners, we aim to develop a technology that will open up innovative ways of producing the basic key chemicals hydrogen and syngas on an industrial scale from natural gas, a resource that will be available for the long term.
Since Syngas is the main precursor for the production of oxo intermediates and oxo derivatives, which are used in high-quality coatings, the company believes that the move will better position it in these markets.
Riverside is an international energy company focused on producing high value Syngas from umineable coal via a process called Underground Coal Gasification (UCG).
Syngas is a mixture of methane, carbon monoxide, hydrogen and a small amount of carbon dioxide (CO).
Chapters address fundamentals and main reactions of biomass gasification, the effect of biomass wastes characteristics on fuel gas composition, the effect of experimental conditions on gasification gas components, processes for reducing ash agglomeration, hot syngas cleaning processes, new syngas utilizations, and main biomass gasification barriers and research and development needs.
The Syngas generation process makes use of a two-chambered system, cerium oxide rotating rings as well as a parabolic mirror having the capability to heat the system s inner chamber to a temperature of about 1,500 C.
The high temperature ensures the efficient transformation of coal to syngas, creating less waste and sustaining a better environment.
Combining the gasification process with Rentech's unique application of proven syngas conditioning and clean-up technology and the patented Rentech Process based on Fischer-Tropsch chemistry, Rentech offers an integrated solution for production of synthetic fuels from biomass.
We create the syngas from a combination of diesel fuel and exhaust gas in a non-catalytic generator that is both robust and has an adequate response time for an automotive application," says Jeremy Holt, president and CEO of NxtGen.
The syngas used as fuel was identical to syngas produced by the U-Gas coal gasification technology developed by the Gas Technology Institute and licensed to Synthesis Energy Systems (SES).
Switching from natural gas to syngas using Nexterra's gasification technology has the potential for widespread application in the forest industry to reduce reliance on fossil fuels, cut costs and improve competitiveness.
