The Design Project for 2006 was to convert natural gas to liquid hydrocarbons using the Fischer-Tropsch process. In particular it was desired to produce naphtha (gasoline) and middle distillates (diesel) that could be sold as transport fuel.
The project reports were handed in on 8 June 2006 and the presentations were given on the afternoon of Friday, 9 June. It was a very hot day.
