In 2006 the economics of the GasTechno process were independently evaluated at 50% - 70% capital cost and up to 20% lower operating cost than competing technologies. It has currently no commercial competitors worldwide for a wide range of applicable scales.
If you are a producer flaring gas or abandoning stranded reserves, or a chemical or alternative fuels company that can't keep up with fluctuating feedstock costs, the GasTechno Process can change your business model. Compare our costs...
Methanol Uses - Links, Research & White Papers: Market news plus a selection of scholarly works on fuel and agricultural applications of methanol.
Why Methanol?... The GasTechno process produces a blended product comprised of methanol, formaldehyde and ethanol. The blended product price trends well above "standard" pipeline costs.
Methanol Pricing Outlook: Despite constrained demand due to weakened activity in the construction and manufacturing sectors, if high oil prices are factored into the methanol pricing equation pricing looks firm.
"Based on MMSA estimates using conventional methanol production technology versus GasTechno design claims, employing the GasTechno technology would place the user among the most competitive suppliers of methanol to Asia, on firm competitive basis."

"Gas flaring is extensive... much of the flaring occurs at small and remote sites for which few utilization options are currently available. The Global Gas Flaring Reduction Partnership therefore encourages efforts to support development of technologies, such as that being developed by Gas Technologies, that may have the potential to convert gas currently being glared into useful products."
