Natural Gas Conversion to Liquid (GTL)Fuels by High Energy Electron Beam Irradiation

  • Accomplishes GTL conversion by irradiating the natural gas in a high density state.
  • converts naturally occurring hydrocarbons

Abstract
Overview

Permanently converting gaseous naturally occurring hydrocarbons (i.e., methane, ethane, propane, and butane) to liquid fuels would greatly improve their transportability. This process is referred to as Gas to Liquids (GTL). GTL conversion through traditional chemical methods is both capital and energy intensive.

Technology

This invention accomplishes GTL conversion by irradiating the natural gas in a high-density state. This process permanently converts the natural gas to a liquid by irradiation chemistry.
