Fischer Tropsch Sythesis

  • Fischer Tropsch is a proven manufacturing process developed in the 1920s in Germany. It takes place in a moderately pressurized reactor at temperatures between 150°C and 300°C ( 302°F and 572°F)
  • With Fischer Tropsch Synthesis the SYNGAS resulting from the Waste Gasification process can be selectively converted into SYNFUELS (gasoline, diesel, kerosene, methane, etc.) as well as CHEMICALS like ethylene (for production of polyethylene), propylene (for production of polypropylene, etc.
  • So far Fischer Tropsch Synthesis has been mainly used to generate Synfuels and chemicals out of coal., methane and biomass

WasteSyn however has developed proprietary catalysts with which all carbon-containing feedstock can be converted into SYNFUELS and SYNCHEMICALS. With our process those products can be produced with such a selectivity, that no additional refining process is needed, saving thereby energy and costs.

  • Waste Gasification coupled with Fischer Tropsch Synthesis is the only process with a positive overall energy balance. This is due to the fact that the Fischer Tropsch Synthesis is strongly exothermic, generating so much energy, that not only the energy needs of the waste gasification process are covered, but also a considerable energy surplus remains. This surplus can be immediately used for heating or power generation
  • The WasteSyn Fischer Tropsch Synthesis not only offers you unparalleled flexibility by enabling you to convert SYNGASES into any desired SYNFUEL or SYNCHEMICAL, but is also so cost-effective that the resulting price of those SYNFUELS and SYNCHEMICALS is highly competitive (e.g. max. $ 0,5/l for diesel)

The advantages of SYNFUELS over fossil fuels are:

  • Synfuels are sulfur-free, colorless and have no smell
  • Synfuels enable a significant reduction in regulated and non-regulated polluting gases like NOx, SOx, PM, VOC
  • Synfuels can be immediately distributed through the existing petrol station infrastructure and can be used in the existing combustion and jet engines without any conversion.
  • Synfuels help reduce green house gases, as Fischer Tropsch Diesel generates 5% less CO2 and Fischer Tropsch Kerosene 2,4% less CO2 than fossil-fuels.
