A comprehensive and up-to-date overview of this process, from the basic science to commercial issues. In addition to the chemical and industrial side of Fischer-Tropsch synthesis, this monograph deals with process economics as well as such "green" concepts as sustainability and environmental care.
The result is a practical reference for researchers and engineers working on fuel processing or fuel cell technologies in industry, while equally serving as a great introductory book for graduate courses in chemistry and chemical engineering. With its didactical approach, the book can also be used for training chemists and engineers in the coal chemical, petrochemical, and power generation industries.
