DOE, RTI to Design and Build Coal Syngas Cleanup System for IGCC Power Plants to Reduce Cost of Removing Contaminants, Capturing CO2; Potential for Synthetic Chemicals and Fuels

Green Car Congress

The system also holds the potential to reduce the cost of producing chemicals, transportation fuels, and substitute natural gas from gasified coal. RTI’s syngas cleanup technologies will be tested at Tampa Electric Company’s 250-MW IGCC power plant, using up to 20% of the syngas produced by the coal gasifier. This information will help refine the integration strategy in an IGCC plant and mitigate technical risks associated with commercial deployment of this technology.

Abengoa is currently the only company with a full-scale, operational power tower, and thus proving this technology could help it reach commercial maturity. A specialized molten salt transport system will then move the high-temperature fluid to a molten-salt steam generator that produces electricity. There is currently no commercial storage mechanism that is compatible with CSP solar dishes, and thus this storage technology could be a breakthrough for the CSP solar dish industry.
