A set of three projects to design and develop an efficient economically and commercially viable power plant incorporating gasification with syngas clean-up
About the project
- Project to design efficient, economical and commercially viable gasification demonstrator plants
- Three companies selected for the competition
- Plant designs required to operate at a net electrical efficiency of at least 25% at 5-20MW scale
We selected three companies to design efficient, economic and commercially viable gasification demonstrator plants.
The challenge for the shortlisted companies was to design demonstrator plants that could operate a net electrical efficiency of at least 25%. Advanced Plasma Power designed a demonstration facility with an electrical output of 6MWe to produce a clean syngas as a fuel for high efficiency power generation. Broadcrown Renewable Energy Ltd designed a high efficiency demonstration facility with an electrical output of 3MWe promoting distributed waste management and power generation. Royal Dahlman designed a plant with an electrical output of 7MWe that converts waste into a clean gas suitable for an efficient combined cycle power plant.
We have now begun a demonstration of the technology identified in the Broadcrown submission.
