Velocys® is the company at the forefront of smaller scale gas-to-liquids (GTL).
Smaller scale GTL turns natural gas or biomass into premium products, such as diesel, jet fuel, waxes and base oils, 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 several hundred patents in over 30 countries, 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.
