Calstar: our Gas-to-Liquid Technology

Let us introduce Calstar: a high purity gas-to-liquid (GTL) technology. This innovative fluid technology converts natural gas into high-quality liquid products. The reason we used natural gas is that it is abundant, versatile and affordable. Moreover, it is the  cleanest burning fossil fuel around.

The advantages of Calstar gas-to-liquid technology

GTL products offer many advantages. First of all, they are colorless and odorless. Furthermore, unlike crude oil, they contain almost no impurities like sulfur and nitrogen. Because of Calstar’s synthetic composition, we were able to improve the performance of solvents for a wide variety of applications involving raw materials for everyday necessities such as plastics, detergents and cosmetics. Gas-to-liquids are also used in agricultural and burning applications.

The Caldic way of working

Only the best products are good enough for us at Caldic. Not only do we sell commodity products; instead, we deliver solutions that follow our customers’ needs. That is why the development process is so important. Previous to a product implementation we visit our customers to see how they designed their processes. After elaborate testing and analyzing we present a tailored solution which we implement at a customer’s facility. We then carefully monitor the results and adjust where needed. Technical support is naturally part of our way of working.

Customer case: saving time and money with Calstar

One of our customers is a producer of wallpaper coverings and Plastisol. The latter is a mixture of PVC particles in a liquid plasticizer and is for example used as a coating for outdoor applications. This customer needed a product that would save both time and money. In the production process, the customer blended two products manufactured by competitors to achieve the optimal technical characteristics required for their products. Not only was this an unwieldy time-consuming process; the quality of the final product was also unacceptably inconsistent.

Our innovative gas-to-liquid technology offered an ideal alternative. Instead of the two products produced by our competitors, they used Calstar to to achieve the desired characteristics. This resulted in a cost-effective production process, saving our customer both time and money.
