INFRA designed and built a proof-of-concept M100 plant near Houston (Texas, USA) to demonstrate the unique proprietary GTL (gas-to-liquid) technology.
In 2018 INFRA built M100 GTL plant for processing natural and associated gas into synthetic oil to demonstrate the key features of its GTL technology:
The plant combined INFRA’s unique proprietary Fischer-Tropsch (FT) system with a number of commercially available technologies integrated into the high-productivity and efficient flowsheet. M100’s process equipment footprint was limited to 4,000 square feet only.
It was designed to produce 100 barrels of synthetic oil – a mixture of diesel, kerosene and gasoline fractions - from 1 million cubic feet of methane per day. INFRA has commissioned and operated the steam-methane reformer at full capacity.
In 2019 M100 was acquired by a joint venture, including Greenway Technologies, Inc. (OTCQB: GWTI), a company that has developed a proprietary GTL syngas conversion system. INFRA issued a technology use license to the acquirer.
