Natural Gas

Axens GaselTechnology Suite enables the production of ultra-clean liquid fuels (GTL), notably jet fuel and diesel, through the conversion of synthesis gas (H2+CO) from purified natural gas.

The Gasel Technology Suite comprises: the syngas purification, the Fischer-Tropsch (FT) conversion of syngas, and the FT product upgrading process using hydrocracking and hydro- isomerization:

Fischer-Tropsch Synthesis
n (CO + 2 H2) (-CH2-)n + n H2O

FT Product Upgrading
This process step combines selective cracking of the long paraffinic chains into middle distillates and
naphtha, along with paraffin isomerization of the diesel cut to improve motor fuel characteristics.
