CTL technologies have a long and distinguished pedigree – being initially developed in Europe during the first three decades of the Twentieth Century.

A wide spectrum of liquid fuels and other chemicals can be produced from coal - but these processes became uneconomic in the post-World War II era when large volumes of cheap crude oil from the Middle East and other oil producing countries entered the marketplace. Since then commercial interest in CTL has been sporadic and marginal in nature [primarily driven by energy security concerns and hikes in the price of crude oil].
