This investigation examines whether an IGCC facility that operates its gasifier continuously but stores the syngas and produces electricity only when daily prices are high may be more profitable than an IGCC facility with no syngas storage. The goal of this study is to generate an initial examination of whether storing syngas can increase the profitability of IGCC plants, rather than to perform a plant design.
