Syngas Production & Upgrading, Hydrogen Production

Syngas, or synthetic gas, is a fuel gas mixture consisting primarily of hydrogen (H2) and carbon monoxide (CO). The chemical composition of syngas varies based on the raw materials and the processes used for its production.


Axens Offer

Nevertheless, no matter which feedstock or technology are used for the production, the syngas must be purified before introduction to downstream units to produce H2, methanol, fuels,… For this purification steps, Axens provides a range of adsorbents.

One pathway to produce syngas is the gasification of natural gas, biomass, coal or even from refining residue via the Fischer-Tropsch reaction. For this synthesis, Axens offers the Gasel Process for the transformation of syngas into XTL fuels. Moreover, upstream Fischer-Tropsch processes, AdvAmine™ technology is available to adjust the optimum H2/CO ratio.

In the syngas value chain, Heurtey Petrochem Solutions provides a comprehensive range of furnaces.
