Coal Gasification is a process that can turn coal into clean power, chemicals, hydrogen and transportation fuels, and can be used to capture the carbon from the coal for storage or for enhanced oil recovery. To better understand the basic concepts behind Gasification, watch this short video: What is Gasification? The Gasification Systems Program is developing advanced technologies to reduce the cost and increase the efficiency of producing coal syngas. Click on the Graphic for more information on key research and development areas, on how systems analysis supports the program, and for information on the benefits of gasification.
Other Gasification Systems Program Activities: Gasification Systems Program coordinates and works with other DOE programs, national laboratories, and private organizations to ensure that gasification R&D dovetails well with other R&D efforts, and to ensure efficient technology development with minimum cost to the taxpayer. Other program activities include; educating the public about gasification and ongoing contacts and discussions with the public and industry concerning what the future of gasification should be.
