Fischer–Tropsch (FT) is a technology that transforms syngas into high-quality liquid fuels (alkanes free from S or other contaminants) that followed a similar development to gasification. It was mainly developed by Germany during the Second World War and SASOL in South Africa after that.Where does the gas go in the Fischer Tropsch process?
The synthetic gas that is produced in the gasifier in conditioned through a partial oxidation reactor (POX); then goes to syngas compression to boost the pressure for the Fischer-Tropsch (FT) unit. The gas goes to the FT unit which produces FT liquids from the syngas.How much does Fischer Tropsch fuel cost per barrel?
Unlike crude oil that must be refined, typically resulting in a 28% price increase, vehicle-ready fuel can be produced at a Fischer-Tropsch facility. With this 28% adjustment, the petroleum oil equivalent price of Fischer-Tropsch fuels from U.S. coal is $26 to $27 per barrel.What are the intermediates in the Fischer-Tropsch process?
Other potential intermediates are various C 1 fragments including formyl (CHO), hydroxycarbene (HCOH), hydroxymethyl (CH 2 OH), methyl (CH 3 ), methylene (CH 2 ), methylidyne (CH), and hydroxymethylidyne (COH). Furthermore, and critical to the production of liquid fuels, are reactions that form C–C bonds, such as migratory insertion.
