A continuous process involving gasification, syngas cleaning, and Fischer–Tropsch (FT) synthesis was developed to produce ‘wide cut’ diesel from wood chip derived  syngas. A multi-functional catalyst was developed and tested for the catalytic conversion of wood syngas to diesel. Liquid fuels similar to commercial diesel was successfully synthesized from bio-syngas.
