The factory will provide the high productivity catalysts to INFRA’s GTL plants, as well as develop industrial manufacturing procedure for the new modifications of the Fischer-Tropsch catalysts. In particular, INFRA is developing new catalysts which allow to generate higher proportion of the diesel or kerosene fraction.
