In some cases purification of the synthesis gas may be required to remove some of impurities like nitrogen species prior to sending the synthesis gas to the downstream synthesis unit. This syngas purification step is using special developed and customized catalysts and processes and is ensuring optimal performance of the downstream unit.
In order to meet the required syngas specification, purification technologies like PSA, membrane, cold box are required. We have well established collaboration with reputed suppliers and these units are integrated into the syngas plant design in the most optimal way to ensure a reliable and cost effective operation of the plant
