XTL Webinars are intended to provide understanding and insights about the XTL industry; that is, the conversion of primary energy sources – natural gas, biomass and coal, to fuels and chemicals. Fuel and chemical products include gasoline, diesel, methanol, dimethyl ether (DME) etc. In general, the webinars include a basic overview of the what, why, who, where, when, and how of the entire XTL value chain from the primary resource, the different conversion technologies, and the products/markets.
The webinars can also be tailored for customer needs and provide more in-depth insights.
Deliverables would include a pdf file of the webinar slides, and delivery of the webinar, using software such as Skype or a webinar program that you prefer.
