Coal-to-Liquids complex in Mozambique to apply Uhde’s Prenflo PDQ process  

By Gerald Ondrey |

ThyssenKrupp Uhde GmbH (Dortmund, Germany; www.uhde.eu) and SGC Energia (SGCE) have entered into a master license and supply agreement for the application of ThyssenKrupp Uhde’s proprietary Prenflo PDQ coal-gasification technology. Under this agreement, SGCE will license ThyssenKrupp Uhde’s Prenflo PDQ process for multiple coal-to-liquids (CTL) projects that will convert coal into high-quality liquid fuels using SGCE’s proprietary XTLHTM solution. Furthermore, both companies have signed a specific license and supply agreement for the CTL project in Mozambique currently in the design phase. Upon movement into the implementation phase, Uhde’s Prenflo PDQ technology will be utilized to process the domestic coal from a coal mine in Moatize, Mozambique. (for more information on Prenflo PDQ, see Chem. Eng., November 2008; www.chemengonline.com/news/4332.html). By means of a Fischer-Tropsch synthesis, clean fuels will be produced for the utilization domestically as well as for export to neighboring countries. The plant will have a nominal design capacity of 9,500 barrels per day and is planned to begin operation in 2016. Uhde is among the world leaders in coal gasification and has 70 years of experience in coal gasification.…
