Integrated gasification combined cycle (IGCC) power plant design and technology

Y. Zhu,     Pacific Northwest National Laboratory USA

H.C. Frey,     North Carolina State University USA

Abstract:

The main process areas of integrated gasification combined cycle (IGCC) plants without and with carbon dioxide (CO2) capture are described. Key factors in IGCC plant design are described for major process areas, including gasification, water–gas shift, gas turbine, CO2 capture, and other emissions control technologies. The advantages and limitations of coal IGCC plants are discussed. The main development trends of IGCC technologies are reviewed and summarized.
