Syngas Purification

Synthesis gas (CO +H2), that is transformed into XTL fuels of high quality via the Fischer-Tropsch synthesis, can be produced through gasification of natural gas, biomass, coal or even from refining residues.  The synthesis gas (syngas) can also be produced by Autothermal reforming from natural gas.  Nevertheless, whatever feedstock or technology used for the production, the syngas must be purified before introduction to the Fischer-Tropsch reactor in order to guarantee the performance.

Axens provides the axsorb range of products that are specially optimized for the desulfurization, drying and elimination of trace contaminants such as halogens or alkalines present in the feedstock.
