The Fourth overseas common gasoline Conversion Symposium used to be attended through a hundred and eighty delegates from 25 nations. illustration was once flippantly balanced among and academia. the hole tackle used to be introduced by way of Mr Roy Pithey, Chairman of South Africa's vital power Fund, who handled the significance and utilisation of traditional fuel in sub-Saharan Africa. Plenary lectures have been provided by means of Professors E. Iglesia (Catalyst layout and selectivity for F-T synthesis) and E.E. Wolf (Oxidative Coupling Methane). a few keynote addresses have been delivered:

- Dr T. Fleisch (Amoco) defined using DME as a shipping gasoline and the paintings which has been performed during this sector in collaboration with Haldor Topsoe

- Professor L.D. Schmidt (Univ. of Minnesota) defined his paintings at the direct conversion of methane at excessive velocities

- Dr B. Jager (SASTECH R & D) said at the fresh advancements in slurry and fluidized mattress F-T reactors as SASOL

- Dr J. Rostrup-Nielsen (Haldor Topsoe) mentioned the position of catalysis within the conversion of traditional gasoline for strength generation.

Areas signalled for additional learn have been: direct conversion of methane to intermediate monomers; methanol conversion to better alcohols; CO/H2 conversion in a commercially attainable path to larger alcohols; and CO/H2 conversion to top quality gas. it truly is seen that such advancements may healthy into the power cycle which has moved from wooden, to coal, to grease, to fuel, and should most likely stream to hydrogen.
