Integrated Gasification Combined Cycle (IGCC) - Gasification of coal, petcoke

Strict emissions standards pose challenges for coal- and petroleum coke-fired power plants. Although complex and expensive, Integrated Gasification Combined Cycle (IGCC ) plants can be attractive solutions when coal or petcoke is available at low cost and when also used to produce marketable secondary products for other industries.
