Worldwide, a small number of integrated gasification combined cycle power plants (IGCC), based on high-efficiency coal gasification technologies, are operated commercially or semi-commercially, a few more are under construction, and a number of demonstration projects, some including carbon capture and sequestration (CCS), are at an advanced stage of planning. Various coal gasification technologies are embodied in these plants including different coal feed systems (dry or slurry), fireproof interiors walls (fire brick or water-cooled tubes), oxidants (oxygen or air), and other factors. Many of these designs are now several decades old but new cycles and systems are emerging to further improve the efficiency of the coal gasification process. This report draws upon the published literature and commentary from experts in industry and academia working in the coal gasification sector to present and summarise recent developments
