Christian Wolfersdorf and Bernd Meyer,    Institute of Energy Process Engineering and Chemical Engineering (IEC), Freiberg, Germany

Abstract

This chapter provides an overview of the status of integrated gasification combined cycle (IGCC) systems. First, the processes and key technologies for IGCC power plants with and without carbon capture are presented. The characteristics of IGCC concepts, e.g., efficiency, environmental sustainability, costs, and availability are discussed and compared to pulverized coal combustion power plants (PCPP). Then, the status of selected IGCC projects is presented. The next section deals with the combination of syngas-based power generation and chemicals ...
