Gas-to-liquid (GTL)

Eastman Therminol® heat transfer fluids ensure reliable and efficient operation in reactive processes that require high temperatures. Gas to liquid (GTL) is a process that converts natural gas to liquid fuels such as gasoline, jet fuel, diesel, and waxes. GTL conversion starts with natural gas—which is mostly methane—and converts it to a mixture called syngas (hydrogen, carbon dioxide, and carbon monoxide). The syngas is cleaned to remove sulfur, water, and carbon dioxide to prevent catalyst contamination. A reaction is initiated to combine hydrogen with carbon monoxide to form different liquid hydrocarbons. These liquid products are further refined into liquid fuels.
