Sustainable Innovation in a Nutshell

The isothermal reactors designed provide more efficiency as well as a stable and high product quality. The generated heat from the reaction zone of the reactor can thus be used for other tasks. In collaboration with CACLs development partners new catalysts were developed, which ensure high efficiency and productivity of the entire process.

The conceptional design of the STF process provides that the circulating gas stream even with high yields will transport relatively small amounts of the base material used. Hence, distinctly lower investment and expenditure will be necessary.


Syngas to Fuel Provides Economic and Ecological Benefits

The STF process provides convincing advantages both from a technological and an economical point of view:

  • High-octane fuel produced from syngas in compliance with the Euro IV standard can be used immediately without further postprocessing
  • High levels of efficiency and effectiveness can be guaranteed by using isothermal reactors as well as newly developed catalysts.
  • Lower investment costs compared to conventional fuel treatment
  • Variable usable feedstocks, thus crude oil associated gases (the so-called flare gases) or other highly-available materials can be used as well
  • Reuse of the methanol-containing water after treatment in the process. This a major advantage in terms of sustainability
  • A high yield is possible for the plant user, since the gasoline produced may be used for its own purposes or can be sold to third parties
  • The high-octane gasoline of the STF process complies with the DIN EN standard and provides partly even better values than conventional fuel.
