New process for producing syngas

A process to convert natural gas into syngas – a mixture of hydrogen and carbon monoxide – is soon to enter the pilot plant stage. Developed by a consortium including BP Amoco, Praxair, Sasol and Statoil, the process integrates a ceramic membrane air separator into a partial oxidation reactor. The companies say it is a […]

A process to convert natural gas into syngas – a mixture of hydrogen and carbon monoxide – is soon to enter the pilot plant stage. Developed by a consortium including BP Amoco, Praxair, Sasol and Statoil, the process integrates a ceramic membrane air separator into a partial oxidation reactor. The companies say it is a cheap and environmentally friendly way to produce syngas.
