Sustainable Energy Solutions


Our gas-to-liquids solution enables the conversion of methane, a potent greenhouse gas, to methanol, an environmentally friendly fuel.

RusselSmith, in partnership with Maverick Synfuels, provides small-scale modular gas-to-liquids (GTL) plants that convert associated and non-associated feedstock gas to methanol.
Our technology helps to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve gas monetization.

Modular Gas Plant
Why Methanol?

Methanol, also known as wood alcohol, has emerged as a game-changing alternative fuel that offers many advantages over traditional energy sources. As a clean-burning fuel, methanol significantly reduces harmful emissions, including greenhouse gases, particulate matter, and sulfur compounds. Its high energy density and versatility make it suitable for a wide range of applications such as transportation, power generation, and industrial processes.

Our Methane-to-Methanol plants are specifically designed to cater to the unique needs of the African market, leveraging our proprietary technology and expertise to efficiently convert methane gas, which is often flared or released into the atmosphere as waste, into high-quality methanol.

Key Features of Our Methane to Methanol Plants
  1. Efficiency and Scalability
    Our plants are engineered for maximum efficiency and can be scaled to meet varying production requirements. Whether it’s a small-scale operation or a large industrial facility, our modular design ensures flexibility and optimal performance.
  2. Environmental Sustainability
    By capturing and converting methane gas, our plants play a crucial role in reducing greenhouse gas emissions and combating climate change. We are committed to promoting sustainable practices and supporting Africa’s transition towards a low-carbon future.
  3. Biogas Utilization
    In addition to natural gas, our Methanol Plant also offers the capability to convert biogas into methanol. Biogas, derived from organic waste materials such as agricultural residues, municipal waste, or wastewater treatment byproducts, presents a sustainable and renewable energy source. By harnessing biogas through our plant, we not only address waste management challenges but also contribute to a circular economy by transforming organic waste into a valuable resource.
  4. Product Quality and Purity:
    Our Methane to Methanol plants adhere to stringent quality standards to ensure the production of pure, high-grade methanol. With a focus on quality control and process optimization, we deliver a product that meets the IMPCA Grade for the stringent requirements of various industries.
  5. Technological Innovation
    Our partner, Maverick Synfuels, is at the forefront of technological innovation in thermo-chemical technologies for the energy sector. Continuous investment in research and development ensures that there is a constant improvement in the efficiency of our Methane to Methanol plants.
    Our combined team of experts is dedicated to driving innovation and delivering cutting-edge solutions in the Nigerian and African market at large.
