Syngas, produced from natural gas or coal, is a key intermediate in the emerging technologies for gas-to-liquids (GTL), methanol-to-olefins, coal-to-liquids and fuel cells.


Syngas generation based on the conventional steam reforming process requires considerable amounts of process steam. Producing this steam has a major impact on the plant’s energy bill. The industry is therefore looking for ways to reduce the steam-to-carbon (S/C) ratio of syngas generation. With conventional reforming catalysts, the reduction of steam can ultimately lead to or accelerate deactivation of the catalyst due to carbon accumulation and coke formation.
