World Carbon To X

World Carbon To X is the leading hub on the optimized use of carbon resource.

Coal, petroleum coke and other carbonaceous residues have a chemical composition which make them usable for applications other than just power generation, while electricity can be produced from non carbonaceous sources such as renewables.

World CTX has organized leading conferences on carbon resource conversion in Europe, China, the United States and India.

However, since the price of crude oil dramatically decreased in 2014, enthusiasm for carbon conversion slowed down. Since 2018, World CTX has considered that economic conditions for an ambitious global event are not met.

World CTX has reduced its structure and its activity.

Coal To X Develpment: China still the Leading Country

That was evidenced in the Gasification Status presented by Higman Consulting on October 17, 2017 at the Global Syngas Technologies (GSTC) Conference in Colorado Springs, USA.
According to this study, when gasification units planned or under construction are commissioned (by 2021):
89% of feedstock will be coal or petroleum coke
86% of them will be in operation in the Asia/Pacific area, mostly in China.

CTL & GTL Most Competitive Fuels by 2020

The Australian Liquid Fuels Technology Assessment provides cost estimates for 18 liquid fuel technologies, such as CTL, GTL, conventional fuels, LPG, biomass to DME and biodiesel.
The comparison criteria is the Levelised Cost of Fuel (LCOF), i.e. the total fuel cost in real dollar terms including all costs, amortised over plant economic life.
Among key findings,
– By 2020, several emerging technologies are expected to be available at lower LCOF than currently available petroleum fuels.
Natural Gas and Coal-Derived Fuels technologies offer the lowest LCOF over most of the projection period and they remain cost competitive with the lower cost renewable technologies out to 2050, if carbon pricing or cost of carbon capture is not included in the LCOF estimates. 2015 resullats of CTX operators published by World CTX tend to confirm this study.

The ALFTA was issued in October 2014 by the Bureau of Resources and Energy Economics, Government of Australia.
