Conventional FTS (Fischer-Tropsch synthesis) processes have used different combinations of catalysts and reactors depending on the desired products. KIER SponCat is a unique catalyst technology for the use of commercial type slurry bubble column reactors, which generates spontaneous and quick catalyst activation in the reaction condition without requiring an extra catalyst pre-activation treatment. Furthermore, KIER SponCat can flexibly control the hydrocarbon product distribution, e.g. (i) wax selective, (ii) oil selective, and (iii) olefin selective, simply by adjusting the catalyst formulation and reaction condition.
