The objective of the team connected to RCGI is to improve both the supports for catalyzes and the active phases and the promoters of reactions. Hydrocarbons are composites in whose infrastructure is made up of only carbon and hydrogen atoms,...
Process is flexible, regulated through the feeding of the reactor, and it generates gases with different compositions. The traditional process for synthesizing natural gas is in the form of vapor, in which a chemical reaction forms water vapor with methane...
There is still room to improve combustion processes in large-sized natural gas-fuelled engines, also in the sense of minimizing methane slip. Developing technologies to improve combustion processes and minimizing methane slip in large natural gas-fuelled engines is the major goal...
