The gas is directly turned into transportable and useable petrol right at the wellhead. What makes this process so unique is the heat transfer application design combining a new developed catalyst. The isothermal reactors guarantee a high level of efficiency and effectiveness.

High-octane gasoline produced in this way is of Euro V classification standards and, in contrast to other methods, can be used without further post-processing — except for stabilisation of the gasoline fraction in a distillation column, no further post-processing steps are required. Non-reacted methanol is recycled to the process.
