Synthesis Gas and Derivatives

Courtesy of Sipchem, Methanol Plant

Synthesis gas (Syngas) is the generic term for raw gas produced from feedstock hydrocarbon and consists of hydrogen (H2) and carbon monoxide (CO) as primarily components and carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4), etc. as remaining components. It is also the generic term for raw gases used for the synthesis of ammonia, methanol, and oxo alcohol or the production of hydrogen. In addition to the application to these existing technology field, the application to the new energy related technology field, such as Gas-to-Liquid (GTL) which is based on Fischer Tropsch process, dimethylether (DME), or substitute natural gas (SNG) and also Chemical product related technology field, Gas-To-Chemical such as Methnoal To Olefins (MTO) or Methanol To Gasoline (MTG) are now drawing much attention to.

Quite wide range of hydrocarbon starting from natural gas (composed mainly of methane), LPG/naphtha, residual oil, coal till industrial waste plastic can be used as feed stock for production of synthesis gas, but it is essential to find the most appropriate syngas production technology to each type of raw material.
We are able to offer the most suited technologies backed by our ample experiences to fulfill our clients' requirements taking final product specification, capacity of the plant, and so on, into consideration from various syngas generation technologies, namely Steam Methane Reforming Process (SMR Process), Autothermal Reforming Process (ATR Process) and combination of SMR process and ATR Process those are applicable to light hydrocarbons starting from natural gas till naphtha and Partial Oxidation Process (POX Process) that is applicable to all kinds of feedstock. In addition to aforementioned syngas generation technologies, we are also able to offer adiabatic steam reforming process that can be used as pre-reforming which convert higher hydrocarbon into methane and reduce the required duty in conventional steam methane reforming.
