Gasification

Providing significant economic and environmental benefits

Gasification can be a highly efficient, practically pollution-free way to produce power, fuels, and chemicals from readily available resources (such as coal, coke, and biomass). Before gasification can effectively compete for new uses in the market, the potential economic advantage has to be compelling, and the probability of success must be demonstrated.

Reduction of market and technology risk is what drives GTI’s program in gasification. GTI works with clients as their development partner for gasification technologies. We help our partners demonstrate technical innovations, new feedstock applications, and better process integration to lower costs and increase reliability. Projects are tailored to meet the needs of each client and each technology development effort. We work on a confidential basis to bring process and technology concepts to maturity, with experts employing specialized testing capabilities from laboratory to large pilot scale.

We have been actively involved in gasification research and development (R&D) for over 60 years, and have extensive experience in the design, construction, and operation of gasification systems, including seven trademarked processes.

Cleaner fuels and chemicals

“Yangquan is one of the largest coal producers in China. The R-GAS™ gasification process offers a step-change improvement in efficiency and cost over current gasification technology and is uniquely capable of gasifying China’s low-rank coal.

Coal is a leading energy choice in China, and finding the most cost-effective and environmentally friendly ways of using it will help to maintain its role as a vital contributor to our economy.”

Mr. Zhai Hong, Chairman of Yangquan Group
