Major technological challenges are addressed in the fields of methane oxidative coupling, ethylene oligomerization, membrane/PSA separation, methane dry reforming, oxygenate synthesis and oxygenate to liquids conversion.
The OCMOL route will be designed to offer 4 main advantages:
An economic operation at capacities of 100kT/year
An operation at more uniform pressure levels
The flexibility of product streams: linear α - olefins, fuels from gasoline to diesel range
Low if not zero CO2 emission thus contributing to face global warming
