Emerging Fuels Technology (EFT), established in 2007, is a technology company focused on the development and implementation of methods for producing synthetic fuels and chemicals from a variety of carbonaceous feedstocks such as natural gas, biomass, municipal solid waste (MSW), coal and bio-derived oils. The company is one of the world’s foremost authorities on Fischer-Tropsch (FT) and related synthesis.
EFT principals have over 100 years combined experience in the FT field. In addition to our Gas-to-Liquids (GTL) experience we have worked on other conversion technologies (XTL) including Biomass-to-Liquids (BTL), Municipal Solid Waste (MSW)-to-Liquids and Coal-to-Liquids (CTL) projects around the world. Additionally, we have applied our upgrading technology to a wide range of non-FT feedstocks such as algae, plant oils and plastics. (See partial list of pilot/demo/commercial experience below)
Our offerings include technology licensing for GTL and XTL projects with start-up support and training services. We also provide a range of related engineering and laboratory services which include contract catalyst development, catalyst testing, analytical services, process development, process modeling (HYSYS), product development, process scale-up, engineering and design, and technology evaluations.
