Colver Technologies will give a presentation at the forthcoming Adaptation Futures conference on climate change in Rotterdam, Netherlands next year.
Online PR News – 09-October-2015 – Liaoning, China – Colver Technologies has been invited to address delegates at the upcoming Adaptation Futures 2016 biennial conference of the Global Programme of Research on Climate Change Vulnerability, Impacts and Adaptation (PROVIA) to be held in Rotterdam, The Netherlands on 10th-13th May 2015 inclusive.
The Liaoning, China-based small-scale gas-to-liquids solution provider’s modular installations are in operation at numerous oil drilling sites around the world where they are turning natural gas that would traditionally be flared into premium value, refined products like diesel and gasoline.
Flaring, where the natural gas byproduct of conventional drilling is burned off into the atmosphere has been outlawed by many governments around the world but some have been slow to act. Consequently, many rigs are still contributing to greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to climate change.
“We’re honored to have been asked to give our perspective on so important an issue,” said Gus Stuyvesant, COO at Colver Technologies. “Perhaps owing the fact that we’re headquartered in China which, as a country, has been heavily criticized for its pollution record and because our solutions are actually bringing about tangible reductions in greenhouse emissions by these oil producers, the organizers saw fit to invite us to address delegates on the practical, real-world side of emissions reduction” he added.
The Adaptation Futures conference aims to strengthen ties between science and the practical side of efforts to tackle climate change by bringing together scholars, policymakers, business people and investors from around the world.
“Colver Technologies will speak on the 10th and the 13th and will confirm times at a later date.
About Colver Technologies
Colver Technologies’ modular GTL systems revolve around the Fischer-Tropsch reactor, a conversion technology developed in the 1920s by Franz Fischer and Hans Tropsche in Germany in 1925. It facilitates the production of significantly cleaner-burning liquid fuels like diesel and jet fuel from natural gas that contains no sulfur. We are committed to doing our part to drive uptake of GTL fuels as global efforts to reduce emissions increase and have invested heavily to ensure the continuing development of this highly attractive alternative to conventional energy production.
