An overview of IGCC systems

Abstract

The Integrated Gasification Combined Cycle (IGCC) is a complex system, which couples technologies of gasification, gas cleanup, and a gas turbine (GT)/steam turbine combined cycle unit together for the generation of electricity in a more efficient, environmentally benign manner than conventional pulverized coal combustion plants. The gasification unit can convert any carbon-based fuel to synthetic or synthesis gas (a mixture of mainly carbon monoxide and hydrogen, commonly referred to as syngas). Sulfur, trace contaminants like mercury, and even carbon dioxide (if a carbon capture option is selected) are removed prior to fuel ...
