Carbon Emissions

A Klean Coal plant has the added benefit of being able to effectively sequester its carbon production. Since the carbon and hydrogen that were bound together in the coal have been separated via the gasification reaction, the IGCC plant can easily be design with proven carbon capture systems to reduce the amount of carbon in the fuel and therefore reduce green house gas emissions from the power plant.

Project that typically focus on methanol production, produce far less CO2 emissions since the process to make methanol consumes the CO2. The captured pure CO2 is a valuable industrial gas which is used in the steel, rubber, food processing, aerosol products, and green house industries as well as use in enhanced oil recovery projects.
