Gasification: LNG, Coal-to-Gas and Biomass transformation


LNG

 

We provide sophisticated automatic protection systems to monitor and control the tank levels, pressures, temperatures and any potential leakage from LNG storage tanks.

We provide complete control system platform (software and hardware) for commercial LNG processes to reduce the energy consumption. For small scale LNG plants like the remote gas liquefaction process, we provide compact, simple and yet effective controls to reduce losses at an affordable and attractive price.

 

Coal to Gas and Biomass transformation
 

The first step in one of the coal-to-gas processes is to feed the coal or biomass and the catalyst into the methanation reactor. Inside the reactor, pressurized steam is injected to  the mixture and ensure constant contact between the catalyst and the carbon particles. In this environment, unlike the conventional gasification shown above, the catalyst facilitates multiple chemical reactions between the carbon and the steam on the surface of the coal or biomass. These reactions (shown below) catalyzed in a single reactor generate a mixture predominately composed of methane and CO2.

 

Catalytic Gasification Reactions

 

Steam carbon:
C + H2O --> CO + H2

 

Water-gas shift:
CO + H2O  -->  H2 + CO2

 

Hydro-gasification
2H2 + C  -->  CH4

 

 

 

 

 

As part of the overall process the production facility recovers most of the contaminants in coal as useful by-products and, in addition, roughly half the carbon in the coal is captured as a pure CO2 stream suitable for sequestration.

Our BLAST (BaLlistic Anchor Sequence Trajectory) technology can help control, automate and optimize these processes faster, more easily and at a far attractive cost compared to alternative or competitor options.
