Deptartment of Chemical Engineering, Dongguk University, 26, Pil-dong 3-ga, Jung-gu, Seoul 100-715, Korea
Syngas production in Gas-to-liquid (GTL) process is focused in past by several researchers to increase the production with minimal capital and operating costs. In this study, syngas production process is simulated and optimized to increase its production and the economic analysis is studied for the proposed optimized process. Aspen HYSYS v8.4 is used for all process simulation work in this article. A new configuration is rigorously simulated while using auto-thermal reforming. Results exhibit a tremendous rise in production of syngas.
