The Fischer-Tropsch synthesis was carried out in a lab microchannel reactor for the BtL application. A commercial type cobalt catalyst with an optimized γ–alumina support was used. High conversions and C5+ selectivities were obtained at 1 kg/kg*h. The experiments serve as basis for the 2 bpd reactor prototype development.
