Natural gas can be cooled to form Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) or chemically converted to transport fuels such as gasoline and diesel, and chemicals. Processes that convert natural gas to liquid fuels are known as Gas-to-Liquids or GTL processes.
CSIRO’s Gas Processing and Conversion research program is developing technologies to more cost effectively develop cleaner fuels and chemical processes using Australia’s abundant natural gas resources. These GTL technologies provide the nation’s energy sector with the opportunity to fully utilise Australia’s hydrocarbon resources, enhancing our sustainability and security in energy whilst helping to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
