Convert Gas to Liquids in a Single Step

The GasTechno® process is a non-catalytic gas-to-liquids technology that converts methane to methanol in one step. Developed by alternative energy company Gas Technologies LLC, GasTechno® is an economic gas conversion platform for small scale producers.

The GasTechno® process is designed to monetize small scale sources of stranded gas from 50 thousand standard cubic feet per day (mscfd) to 30 million standard cubic feet per day (mmscfd); a niche market representing 80% of the global stranded and flared gas market.

Because GasTechno is catalyst-free, it can process a wide range of off-spec feed gases without costly pre-treatment. In almost all cases, from gas produced at biodigesters and landfills to associated gas flared at oil wells, the process accepts methane feedstock "as is."

GasTechno® Features

.: Small Scale Solution
GasTechnoplants are scalable and transportable with the ability to profitably operate at small volumes, allowing even modest point sources to meet carbon reduction goals.

.: Affordable
GasTechno plants are up to 70% lower in capital costs than traditional methanol plants at commercial scales. Operating costs are also reduced by an estimated 20% or more.

.: Natural Gas Applications
The process economically converts stranded or flared gas from remote and/or small scale locations, coal seam and coal bed methane.

.: Biogas and Landfill Gas Applications
The process is well suited to processing off-spec gases resulting from agricultural waste, municipal waste, algal biomass and other renewable sources.

.: Configurable
Add-on processing modules that convert methanol to DME, gasoline, fertilizers or electricity can be engineered into the same commercial plant. Since methanol is so versatile and our CAPEX is unmatched, GasTechno plants can be configured to optimize the economics of the most demanding applications. Send us an inquiry.

NEWS: GasTechno Energy & Fuels (USA) deploys its third generation commercial-scale Mini-GTL® plant in Michigan

Walloon Lake, MI - (July 25, 2016). GasTechno Energy & Fuels (USA) LLC, the exclusive licensing subsidiary of Gas Technologies LLC, recently deployed its first commercial-scale gas-to-liquids Mini-GTL® plant at the New Haven Gas Storage Facility located in Michigan. The rapid, seamless deployment of the plant exceeded even the expectations of CEO, Walter Breidenstein:

"Following final pressure testing, it took us less than one day to mobilize the 40-foot GTL in a Box® container from our Charlevoix manufacturing facility to the gas field and complete the mechanical and electrical connections. Over the next few months, we will perform extensive operational testing of the commercial plant using a range of gas feedstocks before the plant is re-located to North Dakota. Unlike our competitors who optimize their plants for steady flowrate pipeline spec natural gas, our Mini-GTL® plant has the ability to handle peak initial production and off-spec gases with high percentages of inert compounds straight from the wellhead. The ease of deployment validates our modular design philosophy of simple hardware, sophisticated software."

Dr. Lawrence Lau, recently travelled from Singapore to participate in the preferred vendor training program during start-up, commissioning and operations. He started in July to provide valuable feedback for the training manual currently being written for future operators and plant engineers. GasTechno® plans to hold its first operator training program in the 4th quarter of 2016 alongside workshops to construct a robust flare elimination business case for O&G producers and well-pad site planning. Those interested in participating should contact GasTechno Energy and Fuels (USA).

"Whether you are looking for offshore or onshore flare reduction technologies, or gas monetization solutions, I'm continually amazed at how compact and elegant is the Mini-GTL® solution. I've watched the progress of the technology over the past 10 years, and being a mentor for Singapore's premier accelerator program, view the GasTechno® team as exemplifying the lean startup philosophy, achieving all their milestones on a limited but carefully managed budget," says Dr. Lau. "I've also analyzed cleantech companies from around the world and I can say that the GasTechno® process qualifies as a radical innovation, shifting the smart chemical plant right onto remote gas fields whilst being monitored from Michigan. During my time here, I look forward to sharing experiences with manufacturing vendors and potential owners as the GasTechno® team starts pitching to hundreds of flaring sites around the US."
