ExxonMobil Research and Engineering Company (EMRE) today announced that it has entered into an agreement with Synthesis Energy Systems (SES) that provides SES the option to execute up to fifteen Methanol to Gasoline technology licenses in their global operations. SES has chosen to assign the first license to a project near Benwood, West Virginia. This approximate 7,000 barrel per calendar day unit will be based on commercially proven MTG technology which incorporates improvements since...

By Shelley, Suzanne When it comes to managing criteria pollutants (such as SO^sub X^, NO^sub X^, mercury and particulates), IGCC has an inherent advantage over conventional coal-fired power plants, because it relies on relatively compact, energy-efficient separation systems that capture pollutants from the coal-derived syngas before it is used to fire the gas turbines. The pre-combustion syngas stream has a much smaller net volume - typically just 1/100th that of the post- combustion...

A new ChemSystems(R) Special Report published by Nexant -- Polygeneration from Coal: Integrated Power, Chemicals and Liquid Fuels -- analyzes the technologies and economics of producing large capacity power and co-produced chemicals or liquid fuels from coal. Advanced coal gasification technologies have raised the efficiency of coal conversion far above that of conventional coal combustion. As a result, these advanced technologies offer the promise of economically and environmentally...

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 4, 2008) - G4G Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:GXG) ("G4G") announced the incorporation of a wholly owned subsidiary; Alternative Fuels Corporation ("AFC"). AFC will work towards producing synthetic fuels from municipal waste and stranded natural gas using the new generation Fischer Tropsch technology developed by the Centre of Materials and Process Synthesis (COMPS) situated at The University of Witwatersrand in Johannesburg ("Wits"). The COMPS...

A DEESIDE based company is to help a university produce clean energy from unwanted waste. The University of East Anglia has chosen a Refgas system to provide combined heat and power to the university campus. The system, to be delivered early next year, will reduce the university's carbon emissions ratings by a third. Refgas, which is based at Engineer Park, Sandycroft, has developed and patented a unique renewable energy technology. Its gasifier takes in unrecyclable waste which...

By Harris, Linda CONSOL Energy and Houston-based Synthesis Energy Systems, the two companies bankrolling a new, $800 million coal-to-liquid plant in Marshall County, say it just makes sense to build it in West Virginia. CONSOL and SES are teaming up in a joint venture, Northern Appalachia Fuel LLC, to develop and operate a coal gasification and liquification plant in Benwood. It will employ 60-plus workers on a permanent basis to start, and 300 to 500 people during the construction...

Emerging gasification technologies could rapidly advance gasification deployment in the next five to ten years and are being used in advanced, modular systems that significantly reduce capital and plant-operating costs. Prefabricated-gasification systems are easily built and transported to the site. Pending CO2 laws have also created an opportunity for advanced-gasification technologies to be fully developed by smaller firms that need fuel with less CO2 impact. The most significant...

ONE of the most coveted experiences of a university academic staff is the opportunity to undertake a leading edge in research. Chemical Engineering Department Associate Professor Dr Noor Asmawati M. Zabidi (pic) took the advantage to do just that when she was sent to the Eindhoven University of Technology in Holland. "I went there to explore new research areas in the field of nanocatalysis, specifically for gas-to-liquid conversion process," says Asmawati, who was there for nine months....

By KELLEY PRICE A HIGH-temperature process that converts plant and food waste into essential products is emerging on Teesside. The technology could produce everything from the vital chemicals already used in everyday life to next-generation biodiesel in a highly sustainable way. The environmental promise of products created from the process known as pyrolysis is impressive. Syngas, for example, a stepping stone on the holy grail towards producing synthetic diesel and petrol from...
