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

Performer: Gas Technology Institute

Project No: FE0012122

Project Scope and Technology Readiness Level

The project includes three major activities. First, the HMB gasifier will be modeled to determine performance, syngas yield, and syngas composition data needed for the techno-economic analyses in both integrated gasification combined cycle (IGCC) and Fischer Tropsch (FT) diesel configurations. Second, the HMB gasification process will be tested, and the performance and product syngas data needed to support the techno-economic analysis and to provide support for the next stage of HMB gasification process development will be collected. Finally, techno-economic analyses will be performed for an IGCC plant with carbon capture and an FT plant with carbon capture using both a conventional slagging gasifier and the HMB gasifier. Analyses will include baseline cases and parametric calculations to develop optimized HMB plant configurations.

The Technology Readiness Level (TRL) assessment identifies the current state of readiness of the key technologies being developed under the DOE's Clean Coal Research Program. This project has not been assessed.

The TRL assessment process and its results including definition and description of the levels may be found in the "2012 Technology Readiness Assessment-Analysis of Active Research Portfolio".
