Abstract:Gas-To-Liquid (GTL) processes have great potential as alternative to conventional oil and coal processing for the production of liquid fuels. In GTL-processes the partial oxidation of methane (POM) is combined with the Fischer-Tropsch reaction. An important part of the investment costs of a conventional GTL-plant is related to cryogenic air separation. These costs could be substantially reduced by separating air with recently developed oxygen perm-selective perovskite membranes, which operate at similar temperatures as a POM reactor. Integration of these membranes in the POM reactor seems very attractive because oxygen reacts at the membrane surface resulting in a high driving force over the membrane increasing the oxygen permeation.
