Monetize natural gas. Modular. Rapid. Efficient
We offer the most cost effective, scalable Mini-GTL® technology in the world.
GasTechno® Mini-GTL® is the only third-party proven direct methane conversion technology operating in the world (no known single-step competitors). It is the only gas-to-liquids conversion process that is economic beginning at small scales ($3.5 MM CapEx plants, 300 mscfd) without government subsidies.
Gas Technologies LLC, founded in 2004, is the developer of the patented GasTechno® Mini-GTL® technology capable of converting natural gas into high value liquid chemicals and fuels including methanol and ethanol in a single-step.
The GasTechno® Process
Skipping the Synas step
Traditionally, natural gas is reformed into syngas, and then further converted into methanol and other liquid chemicals or fuels. The process is complex and requires high-maintenance catalyhsts and massive economies of scale to be profitable. Most natural gas sources are simply too small to apply syngas technologies. For these applications the GasTechno process is the only option.
The GasTechno process eliminates the syngas step and associated catalyst by converting methane directly into methanol via a patented direct homogenous partial oxidation process. The GasTechno system featues an energy-neutral recycle loop where unreacted methane is scrubbed and recycled until the desired conversion is achieved. The carbon and thermal efficiencies of the resulting process are comparable to syngas-based technologies.
Subject to certain assumptions, the process generates 6.2 gallons methanol, 5.1 gallons formalin and 0.4 gallons ethanol per 1 mscf of methane feedstock. These valuable commodities are easily collected and marketed, mitigating the risk associated with volatile natural gas prices.

The GasTechno® micro- or mini-systems can economically produce alcohols, aldehydes, ethers, ketones, diesel fuel, jet fuel and gasoline.
GasTechno® Mini-GTL® is the lowest-cost system that can convert methane, biogas, biomethane, landfill gas, natural gas, associated gas and coal mine methane into fuels and chemicals.
It is the only methane conversion system that is third-party, independently validated to operate inside a 45-foot shipping container.
In addition, GasTechno® is able to deliver a low-cost oxygen and hydrogen compressor system and also offers a dual-fuel and quad-fuel generator power technology worldwide
GasTechno® Mini-GTL® is the only technology capable of utilizing compressed air rather than a VPSA, PSA or LOX oxygen system for offshore or remote gas field operations.
GasTechnoplants are scalable and transportable with the ability to profitably operate at small volumes, allowing even modest point sources to meet carbon reduction goals.
