Hybrid Molten Bed Gasifier for High Hydrogen (H2) Syngas Production
Performer: Gas Technology Institute
Project No: FE0012122
Program Background and Project Benefits
This Gas Technology Institute project is conducting techno-economic evaluations and laboratory testing of a hybrid molten bed (HMB) gasification process with coal and natural gas co-feeding to produce syngas with high hydrogen to carbon dioxide ratio. HMB gasification has the potential for improvement in operational performance and reliability of advanced coal-based power and liquid fuels generation compared to conventional gasification processes. Lowered cost and increased performance of high hydrogen syngas production would enable liquid fuels production or power generation with decreased cost and lower environmental emissions.
