The Fischer-Tropsch synthesis is a catalytic process that produces hydrocarbons from syngas, a mixture of carbon monoxide and hydrogen. The reaction is a polymerisation of CO and H2 to generate hydrocarbon chains. Invented in the 1920s in Germany, the process has been applied on a large scale to produce petroleum products from coal or natural gas, particularly in South Africa. Its association with low-carbon hydrogen is promising for sustainable aviation fuels.
