12th Natural gas conversion symposium

2 - 6 June 2019, San Antonio, United States

The triennial Natural Gas Conversion Symposium has been bringing together the world's leaders in natural gas conversion since 1987 to share information on the latest trends in research and technology development in these fields.

As in previous editions, the NGCS 12 program will include information on the latest R&D and technology solutions covering leading-edge topics related to the conversion of fossil resources, biomass and waste to syngas, energy, synthetic natural gas, hydrogen, liquid fuels and chemicals.

In addition to a full schedule of plenary, keynote, oral presentations and poster sessions, the program will include optional visits to facilities in the vanguard of global gas research and conversion.

Symposium Topics

Topic 1 | Production of Synthesis Gas Production and purification of synthesis gas from natural gas; New separation methods; Modular/Small scale GTL-FT and GTL general (methanol, ammonia)

Topic 2 | Synthesis Gas to Fuels and Chemicals Fischer-Tropsch synthesis; Methanol and other oxygenates; MTO / MTG / MTA technology; Renewable-GTL

Topic 3 | Direct Conversion of Methane Coupling to C2, direct conversion to aromatics, oxygenates; New concepts in light gas separation

Topic 4 | Conversion of Light Paraffins Conversion of NGL components (C2 - C4) to base chemicals (olefins, aromatics, etc...); New routes to light olefins displaced by shale

Topic 5 | Natural Gas in Energy Conversion Catalytic combustion; hydrogen and carbon-based products; synthetic natural gas, upgrading of coal and petroleum using natural gas

Topic 6 | Techno-Economic and Environmental Aspects Process integration to reduce CO2 footprint and capital intensity of methane conversion processes; Techno-economic studies; Technology demonstration; Industrial processes and plant operation; Process simulation and optimization; Gas resources (shale gas and other unconventionals); CO2 management and capture
