Major Gasification Projects

The Gasification Systems Program sponsors R&D for technology at certain levels of technological maturity. These vary from new technological concepts that may not yet have been experimentally verified, to technology that may have been verified at small scales in the laboratory, to technology that has been scaled up to prototypes that have been operated at perhaps 5% of commercial scale in realistic operating environments. As maturity and scale increase, so does the characteristic investment required. However, the major step from 5% scale to larger scales (25% and up, and in commercial settings) requires substantially higher R&D investment. These larger-scale projects are covered by the Major Demonstrations Program. The Major Demonstrations webpage documents major gasification projects that have attained this higher level of technological maturity and scale.
