Hybrid Molten Bed Gasifier for High Hydrogen (H2) Syngas Production

Performer: Gas Technology Institute

Project No: FE0012122

Project Description

The GTI research team will evaluate and test a hybrid molten bed (HMB) gasification process for producing syngas from a coal/natural gas feed. The HMB gasification process potentially offers several benefits over conventional gasifiers including higher efficiency, higher yield of electricity or diesel, lower cost of electricity or diesel, lower costs for carbon capture, and lower capital costs due to simpler plant layout. The project team will conduct techno-economic analyses for plants based on conventional slagging gasification and HMB gasification producing both power and diesel and including carbon capture.
