Process Simulation for Carbon Dioxide Conversion to Synthetic Fuels via Various Process Pathways

The Challenge

A client with the capability to capture CO₂ is considering synthetic fuel production from CO₂ and water. The client wanted to analyze the energy and mass balance for five different process pathways to determine the most economic and feasible method for fuel synthesis fro CO₂ for a commercial scale synthetic fuels plant.

The Result

Integrated Sustainability utilized process modelling software to model different methods for conversions of CO₂ to synthetic fuel. The simulated processed included:

  • Fischer Tropsch Process for Diesel Production from Syngas
  • CO₂ to Methanol
  • CO₂ to Syngas
  • Methanol to Gasoline
  • Methane Steam Reforming

SAGD OTSG Boiler Optimization Study

Evaluate the potential process advantages and operational issues associated with boiler “rifle tube” retrofits for a SAGD Water Treatment Plant. Consider additional equipment required, and whether increased maintenance will be needed. Also conduct a process modelling, a heat integration study, and a water chemistry analysis to determine the consequences to the plant if steam quality increases and what effect changed waste streams will have.
