A client with the capability to capture CO₂ is considering synthetic fuel production from CO₂ and water. The client wanted to analyze the energy and mass balance for five different process pathways to determine the most economic and feasible method for fuel synthesis fro CO₂ for a commercial scale synthetic fuels plant.
Integrated Sustainability utilized process modelling software to model different methods for conversions of CO₂ to synthetic fuel. The simulated processed included:
- Fischer Tropsch Process for Diesel Production from Syngas
- CO₂ to Methanol
- CO₂ to Syngas
- Methanol to Gasoline
- Methane Steam Reforming
