GTC combines its highly specialized expertise in the licensing of process-based plant engineering with long-standing industry experience.

GTC develops and commercializes licensed processes, including proprietary equipment and chemicals, for the petrochemical industry worldwide. The specific processes are engineered in-house, with a strong focus on aromatization, C5 processing, BTX recovery and gas to liquids processing.
