Title (EN) PROCESS AND SYSTEM FOR CONVERTING BIOGAS TO LIQUID FUELS
(FR) PROCÉDÉ ET SYSTÈME POUR TRANSFORMER DU BIOGAZ EN COMBUSTIBLES LIQUIDES
Abstract:
(EN) A method of producing a hydrocarbon fuel from a hydrocarbon-containing gas is disclosed and described. A hydrocarbon-containing gas is produced (10) containing from about 25% to about 50% carbon dioxide and can be reformed (12) with a steam gas to form a mixture of hydrogen, carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide. The reforming can be a composite dry-wet reforming or a tri-reforming step. The mixture of hydrogen, carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide can be at least partially converted (14) to a methanol product. The methanol product can be converted to the hydrocarbon fuel (18), optionally via DME synthesis (16). The method allows for effective fuel production with low catalyst fouling rates and for operation in an unmanned, self-contained unit at the source of the hydrocarbon-producing gas.
(FR) L'invention concerne un procédé de fabrication d'un combustible hydrocarboné à partir d'un gaz contenant des hydrocarbures. Un gaz contenant des hydrocarbures (10) est produit, qui contient d'environ 25 % à environ 50 % de dioxyde de carbone, et peut être reformé (12) avec un gaz vapeur pour former un mélange d'hydrogène, de monoxyde de carbone et de dioxyde de carbone. Le reformage peut être une étape de reformage composite sec-humide ou de tri-reformage. Le mélange d'hydrogène, de monoxyde de carbone et de dioxyde de carbone peut être au moins partiellement transformé (14) en un produit méthanol. Le produit méthanol peut être transformé en combustible hydrocarboné (18), éventuellement par le biais d'une synthèse de DME (16). Le procédé permet une fabrication efficace de combustible avec des taux faibles d'encrassement du catalyseur et qui peut être réalisée dans une unité autonome sans personnel à la source du gaz produisant des hydrocarbures.
