On a large project-scale Bredenoord offers its generators with synthetic diesel since 2010. This GTL Diesel (Gas to Liquid) is produced via “Fischer Tropsch” synthesis. At this moment the raw material ‘flare gas’, is a waste stream from the petro-chemical industry. In the future this fuel can also be made from other, non-fossil sources.
Advantages GTL Diesel
- No aromatics and sulphur compounds
- Less CO2 and NOx emission
- Biologically degradable
- Low-temperature resistant (-30o C)
- Very long shelf life.
