M2 PRESSWIRE-August 6, 2019-: Syngas Market Share, Size, Trends, Industry Segments, Growth, Leading Players, Regional Analysis with Global Forecast to 2023
Summary: Syngas, also known as synthesis gas, is a mixture of different elements such as hydrogen, carbon monoxide, and carbon dioxide.
[USPRwire, Fri May 03 2019] North America and APAC produce nitrogenous fertilizers, the demand for syngas catalysts is also expected to increase.
Syngas can be produced from many sources, including natural gas, coal, biomass, or virtually any hydrocarbon feedstock, by reaction with steam or oxygen.
This transaction will allow Air Products to expand its synthesis gas (syngas) solutions product offerings and its presence in build, own and operate gasification projects around the world.
According to a release, the company said the move will allow Air Products to expand its syngas solutions and grow its presence in building, owning and operating gasification projects around the world.
The company has been chosen to develop a new cost-efficient gasifier, capable of converting low-grade coal into synthesis gas (syngas) that can be utilised in various applications.
The most practical way to supply syngas to an engine is through fuel reformation.
However, air-steam, oxygen-steam gasification, pyrolysis, and steam reforming gasification are new technologies recently studied, in order to improve the quality of syngas and liquid fuel produced.
The vaporization or fermentation of different types of biomass will produce hydrogen-rich syngas, which can be utilized as primary fuel for engine or partial substitute for conventional fuel.
