Fuels Processing Laboratory

Metadata Updated: March 26, 2018

NETL’s Fuels Processing Laboratory in Morgantown, WV, provides researchers with the equipment they need to thoroughly explore the catalytic issues associated with fossil fuel applications. There, scientists can synthesize catalysts, determine their characteristics and stability, learn how they can be poisoned or fouled, and glean other information about them. The lab houses a Fischer–Tropsch reactor (which is useful in turning solid fuels, such as coal, into gases) and two catalyst characterization units (which give researchers insight into the structure and chemistry of catalytic materials). The lab also includes two reforming test rigs and four bench-scale reactor systems. All of this equipment, and the analytical tools that accompany it, support innovations in how fossil energy sources are used, such as gasifying coal and biomass, removing sulfur from fuels, and turning natural gas into other valuable chemicals.
