A large body of research from the 1920ís through the present day has been devoted on the development of the Fischer-Tropsch and related processes. Although under special circumstances Gas-To-Liquids can be profitable widespread proliferation of GTL plants has not yet materialize. Economies of scale, energy efficiency, and feedstock cost are the main challenges. We would like to invite talks from industry and academia to discuss recent developments to further advance GTL technology. Particular emphasis will be given to FT and syngas production reactor studies (such as hydrodynamics, scale-up, modeling, catalysis, and kinetics), process integration, capital cost reduction, and energy optimization. Contributions in utilization of alternative feedstocks (e.g. coal or biomass), production of alternative fuels (e.g. ethanol) or chemicals and co-production of chemicals are also sought.
