Abstract:

Concerns about climate change and the energy crisis have stimulated interest in developing advanced clean coal energy systems with high efficiency and near-zero emissions. Integrated gasification combined cycle (IGCC) technology typically has lower emissions and greater fuel flexibility than conventional coal-based power generation technologies. Specifically, IGCC enables effective precombustion CO2 capture with less efficiency reduction than a conventional pulverized coal power plant. In this chapter, the design of major process components, including gasifier, water-gas ...
