Natural gas is combined with oxygen to form a syngas which is then subjected to a Fischer-Tropsch conversion, resulting in waxy syncrude.
Finally, this is cracked down to produce the end product. The strength of the Sasol SPDTM process is not simply in the inherent quality of the three component technologies but more importantly how they are combined and integrated to increase efficiencies and optimise output.
The synthetic GTL-based diesel is an environmentally cleaner burning fuel as it leads to a reduction in carbon monoxide, hydrocarbon and particulate matter without compromising NOx emissions even when compared to European sulfur-free diesel. The process also produces water and oxygenated hydrocarbons which are then purified and marketed.
The C2 stream is split into ethylene and ethane. The ethane is further cracked to yield additional ethylene which are then converted into polyethylene for the polymer business.
Propylene from Secunda and Sasolburg plants are also converted into high-value products such as polypropylenebutanol, butyl acrylate and ethyle acrylate.
The acrylates are used to make superabsorbent polymers which are used in diapers. Through Proprietary technology 1-hexene1-octene and 1-pentene are recovered from the oil stream.
International customers use these as co-monomers for making speciality grade polymers. Some of the higher olefins C11 — C12 are converted into detergent -range alcohols. The syngas mixture of hydrogen and carbon monoxide is also converted in methanolbutanol and ammonia.
Ammonia is then further converted into nitric acid and ammonium -based fertilizers and explosives. Tetramerisation[ edit ] In Sasol Technology Research and Development began research on the selective trimerisation of ethylene to 1-hexene.
This led to the development and patenting of 6 trimerisation catalyst systems. A groundbreaking innovation was made inwith the discovery of a tetramerisation catalyst that could make 1-octene in high selectivity.
This was considered impossible by international experts in the field. Construction of this first-of-a-kind plant in Lake CharlesLouisiana, is under way. The ready for commissioning date is August The Natref refinery was commissioned in Sasolburg in Sasol has a 63,64 percent interest in Natref and Total South Africa a 36,36 percent shareholding.
The refining capacity of Natref tobarrels per day. Natref is one of the only inland refineries in South Africa. It was designed to get the most out of crude oil and is equipped with state-of-the-art technology.
Some of the products produced from the refinery are dieselpetroljet fuelLPGilluminating paraffin, bitumen and sulfur. It was thought that if this coal could be used to produce synthetic oilpetrol and diesel fuel, it would have significant benefit to South Africa.
In the s, South African scientists started looking at the possibility of using coal as a source of liquid fuels. This work was pioneered by P. Lategan, working for the Transvaal Coal Owners Association. Ina white paper from the government was issued describing various oil-from-coal processes being used overseas and their potential for South Africa.Visual Computing Lab at the Technical University of Munich headed by Prof.
