Johnson Matthey's DAVY™ reforming technologies transform natural gas into synthesis gas (syngas, predominantly CO, CO2 and H2). Syngas is a feedstock for the DAVY gas-to-liquids (GTL) and methanol processes.
Developed in collaboration with BP, the compact reformer combines three process steps – combustion, heat recovery and reaction – into a simple tubular module which does not require purified oxygen. This reduces the reformer’s size and weight, making it particularly useful for off-shore or remote applications.
We offer different reforming technologies to fit various operating conditions. In addition to the compact reformer, we also offer auto-thermal, gas-heated and steam methane reforming options. It is also possible to combine DAVY reformers, depending on process requirements.
