The triennial Natural Gas Conversion Symposium has been bringing together the world's leaders in natural gas conversion since 1987 to share information on the latest trends in research and technology development in these fields. The next edition of this long-running symposia series, NGCS 12, will take place June 2 - 6, 2019 in San Antonio, Texas, and members of the scientific, academic, research and industry communities involved in natural gas conversion and related topics are encouraged to take part.

As in previous editions, the NGCS 12 program will include information on the latest R&D and technology solutions covering leading-edge topics related to the conversion of fossil resources, biomass and waste to syngas, energy, synthetic natural gas, hydrogen, liquid fuels and chemicals. Selected presentations will be published in well-established industry and scientific journals, with all manuscripts subject to a peer-review process in accordance with the rules of the journal.

In addition to a full schedule of plenary, keynote, oral presentations and poster sessions, the program will include optional visits to facilities in the vanguard of global gas research and conversion.

Symposium Topics

Topic 1

Production of Synthesis Gas
Production and purification of synthesis gas from natural gas; new separation methods

Topic 2

Synthesis Gas to Fuels and Chemicals
Fischer-Tropsch synthesis; methanol and other oxygenates; MTO / MTG / MTA technology

Topic 3

Direct Conversion of Methane
Coupling to C2, direct conversion to aromatics, oxygenates; new concepts in light gas separation

Topic 4

Conversion of Light Paraffins
Conversion of NGL components (C2 - C4) to base chemicals (olefins, aromatics, etc...); new routes to light olefins displaced by shale

Topic 5

Natural Gas in Energy Conversion
Catalytic combustion; hydrogen and carbon-based products; synthetic natural gas, upgrading of coal and petroleum using natural gas

Topic 6

Techno-Economic Aspects
Process integration to reduce CO2 footprint adn capital intensity of methane conversion processes; techno-economic studies; technology demonstration; industrial processes and plant operation; process simulation and optimization; gas resources (shale gas and other unconventionals); CO2 management and capture
