First Direct Conversion of Natural Gas to Liquids Without CO2 Emissions

CoorsTek, an engineered ceramics manufacturer in Golden, CO, said a team of scientists from CoorsTek Membrane Sciences, the University of Oslo (Norway) and the Instituto de Tecnología Química (Spain) has developed a new process to use natural gas as raw material for aromatic chemicals. The process uses a ceramic membrane to make the direct, non-oxidative conversion of gas to liquids possible for the first time – reducing cost, eliminating multiple process steps, and avoiding any carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. The resulting aromatic precursors are source chemicals for insulation materials, plastics, textiles, and jet fuel, among other valuable products. Direct activation of methane, the ma
