  • The XTL (Anything to Liquid) Process Essay

    787 Words  | 4 Pages

    XTL (Anything to Liquid) is recently emerging phrase that represented all of technologies intended to convert any source of carbon to liquid hydrocarbons. These processes have at least three main steps: syngas production, Fischer Tropsch Synthesis (FTS) and product finalizing. Syngas production might be different from feed and technology point of view and these differences affect all downstream units partially. In this step, source of carbon converted to syngas which is a mixture of hydrogen and

    chlorine (a chlorofluorocarbon, or CFC). CFCs are nontoxic, nonflammable, and make almost ideal aerosol propellants. But when it was learned that they causedestruction of stratospheric ozone, they were replaced with other solvents, like alcohols and hydrocarbons. Unfortunately, these are flammable. One of the polymers used is polyvinylpyrrolidine, which is also used to glue the layers of wood in plywood together. An non-water soluble polymer called

In a liposomal context this means that above blow the phase transition temperature the capsule wall is very rigid and an almost solid gel like state due to being well ordered hydrocarbons which are closely packed. If the temperature increases this is not the case and as it passes the phase transition temperature the phospholipid bilayer becomes a lot more

    Group of compounds that include common products such as Freon’s Naming Organic Halides o Consider the halogen atom as an attachment on the parent hydrocarbon chain. o The halogen name is shortened to either fluros, chloros, bromo, or iodo. Properties of Organic Halides: o The presence of the halogen atom (ie – Cl) on a hydrocarbon chain makes the molecule polar. o Halogens are more electronegative than carbon and hydrogen o Due to polarity, will have higher boiling points

    have “few (or no) adverse physical effects on operations or on surrounding communities”; though public concern regarding the seismicity associated with EGS operations is present (Majer et al., 2007). These events do not compare to the cases where hydrocarbon production and waste disposal have induced seismic events large enough to cause significant damage. Therefore, EGS-induced seismicity should not pose a threat to geothermal energy development if quality site selection is carried out and operators

    additives have replaced the lead compounds. The most popular additives include aromatic hydrocarbons, ethers and alcohol (usually ethanol or methanol). For technical reasons the use of leaded additives is still allowed to use widely in world for the formulation of some grades of aviation gasoline such as 100LL (one hundred low lead), because the required octane rating would be technically infeasible to reach without the use of leaded additives. 1.2.2 Naphtha Naphtha is obtained in petroleum refineries

    The Fischer-Tropsch (FT) process is a part of the larger Gas to Liquids technology. The purpose of the FT process is to convert syngas, which is a mixture of carbon monoxide and hydrogen, to liquid hydrocarbon fuels. Syngas for FT can be coal, natural gas, or biomass derived, which opens several pathways for how FT can be industrialized. Since its creation, the FT process has continuously been researched and commercialized, but it remains an unpopular pathway to obtain liquid fuels. Ongoing development
