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

Performer: Gas Technology Institute

Project No: FE0012122

Project Description

The research team will evaluate and test a hybrid molten bed (HMB) gasification process for producing synthesis gas (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 fuel, 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 the HMB gasification process for producing both power and diesel fuel with carbon capture.
