Navi Mumbai, Maharashtra India (PressExposure) September 05, 2007 -- Bharat Book Bureau, a leading market information distributor has put forth a report âCommercialization of Coal Gasification Technologiesâ([http://www.bharatbook.com/detail.asp?id=30529])
Coal gasification offers one of the most versatile and cleanest ways to convert the energy content of coal into electricity, hydrogen, and other energy forms.
Coal gasification allows the U.S. to more effectively exploit its enormous, inexpensive coal reserves. The process assists lower environmental-impact power generation and is quickly becoming a viable alternative to traditional generation methods.
The first pioneering coal gasification electric power plants are now operating commercially in the United States and in other nations, and many experts predict that coal gasification will be at the heart of the clean coal technology plants for several decades into the future. For example, an advanced coal gasifier will be at the core of the U.S. Department of Energy's FutureGen power plant.
Rather than burning coal directly, gasification breaks down coal - or virtually any carbon-based feedstock - into its basic chemical constituents. In a modern gasifier, coal is typically exposed to hot steam and carefully controlled amounts of air or oxygen under high temperatures and pressures. Under these conditions, carbon molecules in coal break apart, setting into motion chemical reactions that typically produce a mixture of carbon monoxide, hydrogen and other gaseous compounds.
The process of coal gasification offers many advantages over the traditional coal combustion technology in terms of reduced emissions, thermal efficiency, and the ability to generate hydrogen or other high-value fuels or chemicals. In addition, coal gasification plants do not produce any scrubber sludge that needs careful and costly disposal. Another advantage of coal gasification is that coal ash from gasifiers is not hazardous and its leaching effect is low.
This Report provides an in-depth analysis of the coal gasification industry and helps one understand this fascinating technology further. The report discusses in detail the various challenges facing the technology, along with factors that are boosting the growth and of gasification. You can find information on all the different types of gasification processes and the technologies that are used during gasification. Case studies of successful projects and a focus on the leading players in this industry make this report vital to the informed reader, inside and outside the industry.
