Development of a Novel One Step Process for Gas Conversion to Liquid (2008–2011)

This project aims to develop a novel one step process for turning natural gas into liquid fuels using plasma-catalyst hybrid process. Recent dramatic increase in crude oil price and depleting oil reserves have led to renewed interests in alternative energy sources for gasoline production. The traditional Fischer-Tropsch reaction to produce hydrocarbons has never been economically viable. This project has the potential to provide a much more effective and economical process for converting gas to liquid within a smaller space compared with the traditional process. ,
