Syngas (or synthesis gas) catalysts from Clariant are used around the world for cost- and energy-efficient production of ammonia, methanol and hydrogen as well as for fuel cells, gas processing and various gas-to-liquid (GTL), coal-to-liquid (CTL) and biomass-to-liquid (BTL) processes.

As a leading supplier of syngas catalysts and adsorbents, we offer a complete portfolio of solutions for ammonia and methanol synthesis, on purpose hydrogen production, as well as feed purification, Reforming, shift reactions and methanation to name a few. For each of these syngas processes, our innovative catalysts are optimized to enhance the performance, efficiency and profitability of production plants.

Some of our latest syngas innovations include a new generation of reforming catalysts with ultra-low pressure drop, development of a new essentially hexavalent chromium free High Temperature Shift (HTS) catalyst which already fulfills the upcoming REACH regulations and a new generation of methanol synthesis catalyst with an extremely high activity even when operating in low temperatures.

Clariant collaborates with renowned technology partners, such as KBR, Casale, Air Liquide and Technip to ensure our customers receive tailor-made turnkey solutions. We also offer comprehensive service from plant design and construction, to start-up assistance, reformer temperature scans and follow-up maintenance to ensure optimal operating performance.
