Innovations in Gasification

By Joy LePree |

There is increasing interest in meeting the growing demand for generating power, fuels and chemicals by tapping into local resources. It not only reduces reliance on imported oil and gas, but also guarantees stable price development over the long term. One available solution, according to the experts, is the environmentally friendly gasification of carbon-containing fuels, such as coal, refinery residues, biomass or waste, into these high-grade products. Gasification is becoming an attractive option around the globe, but each region has its unique reasons for adopting the technology. Areas such as China and the U.S. are employing gasification to produce fuels and power. “For example, the integration of entrained-flow gasification into modern, integrated gasification combined cycle (IGCC) gas-fueled power plants provides a highly efficient, low-emission, and eco-friendly means of generating electricity from many kinds of carbon-containing feedstocks,” explains Anton Haberzettl, head of business development with Siemens Fuel Gasification Technology, Energy Sector (Freiberg, Germany; www.siemens.com). “Carbon dioxide separation can also be easily integrated into systems of this type so that the extracted CO2 can be stored…
