Gas Conversion & Processing

Extracting the Most Value from Natural Resources

Global demand for power, hydrogen, liquid fuel and chemical production is growing as access to low-cost resources provides new market opportunities. Renewable raw materials can be converted into valuable energy products in minutes instead of millennia.

GTI is working on a portfolio of technologies and processes for transforming natural gas, coal, coke, and biomass into clean power, fuels, and chemicals.

GTI provides technical and economic process expertise and solutions for comprehensive fuels processing. We are developing new technologies to lower the cost of upgrading subquality gas to pipeline and LNG specifications and to provide better approaches to meeting environmental regulations of gas processing facilities.

Our technology platforms for midstream cleanup remove contaminants before the gas is brought to market with advantages in capital cost, operations and maintenance cost, and footprint. GTI researchers have extensive background in gas processing and clean-up technologies to produce gaseous and liquid biofuels suitable for a wide range of applications: pipeline quality gas, liquid transportation fuels, renewable chemicals, and hydrogen.

Technical and economic process expertise

GTI provides solutions focused on chemical and physical separations technologies and processes, including all aspects of natural gas and syngas treating and processing, CO2 capture and utilization, and methane activation.
