Improvement opportunities for IGCC*

He Fen and Rob van den Berg,    Shell

Abstract

Starting from the currently available technologies in a modern Integrated Gasification Combined Cycle (IGCC) scheme, this chapter discusses future improvement opportunities for IGCC. With the aid of process simulations, the IGCC efficiency of various lineups can be compared, which provides insight into ways in which the coal-to-power efficiencies of IGCC can be improved further based on (near-) commercial technologies in schemes with and without CO2 capture.
