GTL Energy Ltd has developed a unique proprietary technology to remove moisture from low rank coals and biomass and in doing so, raise the energy content, reduce emissions, improve the transportation and handling characteristics and increase the market value of these abundant fuels. The process is economically attractive with no environmental impact and does not affect the raw coal characteristics except for the reduction of moisture.
This technology is now being applied at scale in a commercial application. In addition to a pilot scale testing facility in Colorado and a commercial scale test platform available in North Dakota, GTL Energy has commisioned its full-scale production facility on behalf of Solid Energy New Zealand.
GTL Energy is moving forward with plans to build a 1 million tpy facility in Indonesia and is actively seeking additional license opportunities with third party developers.
