Synfuel - made by Choren® & Infiniventus®
In the meantime the worldwide raw-material situation has changed and crude oil prices are rising. Synthesis gas manufacture from biomass, coal, gas is undergoing a boom. At the present time biomass or coal gasification opens up the cleanest and most flexible way to convert it into high-quality products. Meanwhile, about ten process variants have been developed for biomass/coal gasification.
A decisive role is played here by gas synthesis plants in the fuel industry and in the chemical sector. The flexibility of the reactive CO/H2 mixture as an intermediate for the chemical industry, or also as fuel for the power industry, is in demand as never before.
Synthetic fuels for aviation users
Fischer-Tropsch (FT) fuels offer numerous benefits to aviation users. The first is an immediate reduction in particulate emissions. FT jet fuel has been shown in laboratory combusters and engines to reduce particulate matter emissions by 96% at idle and 78% under cruise operation. Validation of the reduction in other turbine engine emissions is still under way. Concurrent to the particulate matter reductions is an immediate reduction in CO2 emissions from FT fuel. FT fuels inherently reduce CO2 emissions because they have higher energy content per carbon content of the fuel, and the fuel is less dense than conventional jet fuel allowing aircraft to fly further on the same load of fuel.
