Investigation of WO3-based H2S Sensor Materials for Coal Gasification Systems

Performer: University of Texas at El Paso

Project No: NT0008022

Program Background and Project Benefits

This project will investigate a WO3-based H2S sensor material for coal gasification systems. It will support efforts to develop sensors for harsh conditions to assist in monitoring the operation and performance of critical components within gasification facilities. Technical improvements to overcome existing barriers to improving H2S sensors will be made. In addition, a knowledge database will be created to address future issues relevant to the NETL sensor program. Ultimately, these advancements will result in lower operating costs for gasification facilities.
