For GTL, BTL and CTL Processes (XTL)

 The production of synthetic liquid fuels from natural gas (GTL), biomass (BTL) or coal (CTL) as a substitute blending of conventional fuels will play an increasingly important role in the years to come. Today oil is the most important fuel and thus of huge significance. At the same time we know that the oil reserves will one day be depleted.
The search for alternatives is therefore in full swing. Amongst other approaches, the winning of high purity fuels from natural gas, biomass and coal is being pursued.

 MAN Diesel & Turbo has already undertaken wide-ranging development work in recent years and is involved in the construction of heavy Fischer-Tropsch reactors for international projects.

These MAN Diesel & Turbo DWE® reactors will play an increasingly important role in the production of synthetic fuels. Special reactors are needed for these liquefaction processes. Our many years of development work mean we are outstandingly experienced in the construction of reactors for gas-to-liquid (GTL) processes. We already offer Fischer-Tropsch reactors, or so-called GTL reactors, the centerpiece of future two-stage GTL plants. Naturally, our customers can also trust on our technological leadership for implementation of BTL (biomass) and CTL (coal) processes for BTL and CTL reactors.
