German Firms Seek New Syngas Route

by Michael McCoy
July 8, 2013 | APPEARED IN VOLUME 91, ISSUE 27

The German firms BASF, Linde Group, and ThyssenKrupp are joining to develop an environmentally superior process for producing synthesis gas, a mixture of hydrogen and carbon monoxide used as a feedstock by the chemical industry. The current process of reforming methane produces large amounts of carbon dioxide as a by-product. Backed by the German government and working with two academic partners, the companies intend to use a high-temperature technology to convert natural gas into hydrogen and solid carbon. The hydrogen can then be reacted with CO2 to yield syngas.
