Velocys® is the company at the forefront of smaller scale gas-to-liquids (GTL).
Smaller scale GTL turns natural gas (or biomass) into premium liquid products, such as diesel and jet fuel, adding value to shale gas and making stranded or flared gas economic – untapped markets of up to 25 million barrels per day.
Velocys technology, protected by over 900 patents, is specifically designed for smaller scales, resulting in standardized modular plants that are economic, easier to ship and faster to install, at lower risk, even in the most remote locations.
Think Smaller. Velocys is changing the way fuels are made.
Construction has begun for a commercial GTL facility using Velocys technology – ENVIA Energy's Oklahoma City plant next to Waste Management's East Oak landfill site. The project is being financed by a joint venture Velocys has formed with Waste Management, NRG Energy and Ventech to develop GTL plants using renewable biogas and natural gas. Commercial operation is expected in H1 2016. » Press release
