JGC's MRG (Methane Rich Gas) process is low temperature steam reforming technology that hydrocarbons (such as LPG or naphtha) methanol or DME convert into methane. This process is applied to town gas production or the pre-reforming step of synthesis gas production for GTL etc. Using a JGC-developed catalyst this process has realized greater flexibility in operating conditions as well as greater space savings and energy savings.
(1)A JGC-developed high performance catalyst permits operations over a wide range of operating conditions particularly at low temperatures and low steam ratios. (2)The MRG reactor outlet gas contains no hydrocarbons other than methane - an advantage that reduces the load on the following process steps. (3)The compact MRG reactor requires a smaller installation space.; 19 units of town gas production and 8 units of pre-reformer for synthesis gas production
