In New Jersey, Primus Green Energy has been awarded a patent for its STG+ gas-to-liquids technology, which it will implement in a commercial plant they are expected to break ground on this year. The technology uses syngas derived from natural gas and other carbon-rich feedstocks to produce high quality, cost-effective, drop-in liquid fuels in a single-loop process. STG+ represents a cost breakthrough for the GTL industry, as it demonstrates compelling economics at scales of less than 6,000 barrels per day. The patented process is far simpler and more efficient than existing GTL technologies as it transforms syngas to liquid fuels with only one condensation step and also recycles untransformed gases.
