SGC Energia orders FT reactor from Oxford Catalysts

Speciality catalysts developer Oxford Catalysts has received an order for a commercial-scale Fischer-Tropsch (FT) reactor and catalyst from SGC Energia (SGCE).

This is the company’s second order for a commercial FT unit, following an order from SGCE in December 2010 that was fulfilled successfully on schedule in March 2011.

The units will be deployed in a facility being constructed in South America.

SGCE is currently completing its plans for a second and much larger commercial plant and it expects to be in a position to proceed with the project in the second half of 2011.
