Syngas engineers and experts work with this mixture of hydrogen and carbon oxides produced from hydrocarbons, coal or biomass, called syngas. Syngas is an important intermediate in the chemical industry for manufacture of ammonia, methanol and other petrochemicals, hydrogen for refineries and fuel cells as well as electricity generation. It is playing a growing role in the energy sector, creating opportunities and flexibility in the complex energy network as it can be transformed into a number of important energy carriers and fuels leading to applications in a number of industries.
The formation of syngas is strongly endothermic and requires high temperatures, often performed in externally heated tubular reactors. Catalysts and catalytic processes are also important in the production of synthesis gas from natural gas. A syn gas expert is someone who is well-versed in reactor design, catalyst selection, and relevant technologies such as gas purification, reforming, methanation, and GTL processes.
Changes and developments in the markets for synthesis gas and hydrogen, driven largely by environmental and remote gas monetization, are leading to innovation in the reaction engineering of syngas generation. A syn gas expert provides help with reactor selection, catalyst, and process design, feasibility study, purification, operation and maintenance, and scale. The technical expertise of a syngas expert will lead to a continuous improvement in the carbon efficiency and purity of the process. The expert can also help examine a wide range of alternative feedstock solutions to design the appropriate process for the case such as syngas from coke, syngas from coal, syngas from waste, or syngas from biomaterial.
The syngas engineers and experts at Lee Enterprises Consulting include scientists, engineers, and experts with years of experience in syngas processes such as steam reforming, gasification, Fischer–Tropsch, and waste-to-energy. Our team has a strong background in reactor design, catalysis, product separation, and plant optimization to deliver the highest possible feedstock utilization, energy efficiencies, and product yield. For over 25 years, we have been assisting companies and investors with issues relating to sustainability, bioenergy, biomaterials and chemicals, biotechnologies, and feedstocks. With over 150 consultants, we have the diverse expertise and geographical reach to assist in virtually any bioeconomy project worldwide. These seasoned professionals average over 30 years each in their industry experience. Our ability to assemble these professionals into multidisciplinary teams allows us to fully integrate the technical, scientific, and regulatory aspects of a project, and combine them with years of hands-on experience. Take a look at our experts and the services we provide. You will note that most of our experts are also available for ancillary engagements and advice, for specialty engagements like serving as expert witnesses in litigation matters.
