The syngas produced by PEGS® plant is further compressed and processed in the Catalytic Alcohol Syntheis System (CASS) with WRI’s patented catalyst and process to produce mixed alcohol that is predominantly ethanol. The alcohols are then further separated into fuel grade ethanol, AA grade methanol and industry grade propanol for selling as separate products. The mixed alcohol without separation is also suitable for blending with petrol as a premium high-octane blend.
