The production of synthetic liquid fuels from natural gas, biomass or coal as a substitute blending of conventional fuels will play an increasingly important role in the years to come. Today oil is the most important fuel and thus of huge significance. At the same time we know that the oil reserves will one day be depleted.
The search for alternatives is therefore in full swing. Amongst other approaches, the winning of high purity fuels from natural gas, biomass and coal is being pursued.

So what is the difference between a Fischer-Tropsch reactor and a Slurry reactors.
