Fischer-Tropsch synthesis is one of the most prominent alternatives in order to substitute fossil fuels and therefore reduce GHG emissions. In order to become economically viable, the optimization of the process is necessary, and the most cost-effective way to determine its feasibility is through process modelling software. However, the behavior of this reaction is a challenge for the process simulation software due to the number of parallel and series reactions which occur simultaneously. Therefore, a guideline for the correct simulation of this process is presented in this paper
