U.S. scientists say they have developed a method of producing competitively priced energy from municipal, agricultural, and forest wastes. Researchers from Purdue University and the Rochester Institute of Technology say their flexible carbon-to-liquid fuel process could replace 20 percent of the transportation fuels consumed annually in the United States. Purdue Professor Fu Zhao, the study's lead author, said the technology could also reduce greenhouse gas emissions by more than 50...

Advanced Gasification Systems are becoming less costly to build -- an important development for a gasification industry that hopes to bolt forward within the foreseeable future. While $6 billion IGCC and $2 billion SNG projects appear to have stalled, for example, Synthesis Energy Systems' simpler, more modular, highly efficient SES U-GAS/MTG systems are being deployed at capital costs of only $36 million per unit to produce methanol for the petrochemical industry and feed for unleaded...

ExxonMobil has entered into an agreement with Pratt & Whitney Rocketdyne to develop next-generation technology to convert coal, coke or biomass to synthesis gas, which could facilitate the use of carbon capture and storage to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from power generation. Under the agreement, the ExxonMobil Research and Engineering Company and Pratt & Whitney Rocketdyne will work together to develop and test new gasification technology to improve efficiency and reduce the...

Rentech, Inc. (AMEX:RTK) today announced that the Company believes the enactment of the Emergency Stabilization Act is a positive step toward creating financial stability in the marketplace. The inclusion of several tax provisions in the Act will greatly benefit Rentech's efforts in domestic alternative fuels production. Rentech has a commercial pipeline of both biomass and fossil based projects utilizing the Rentech Process, a patented and proprietary technology that converts synthesis...

The ExxonMobil Research and Engineering Company has announced that Synthesis Energy Systems has selected 15 of ExxonMobil's methanol-to-gasoline technology licenses for its coal-to-liquids projects. Synthesis Energy Systems (SES) has chosen to assign the first license to a project near Benwood, West Virginia. This approximate 7,000 barrel-per-day unit will be based on methanol-to-gasoline (MTG) technology which incorporates improvements since the technology was originally commercialized by...

THE work being carried out at Newcastle University into clean fuels is both complex in its detail and simple in its aim. Prof Paul Younger is leading a team which wants to turn coal into energy using underground gasification and capture power station emissions using Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS). Underground gasification is a process first trialled in the Durham coalfields in 1912, whereby coal is gasified underground by injecting steam and oxygen via boreholes into the seam. The...

ExxonMobil Research and Engineering Company (EMRE) today announced that it has entered into an agreement with Synthesis Energy Systems (SES) that provides SES the option to execute up to fifteen Methanol to Gasoline technology licenses in their global operations. SES has chosen to assign the first license to a project near Benwood, West Virginia. This approximate 7,000 barrel per calendar day unit will be based on commercially proven MTG technology which incorporates improvements since...

By Shelley, Suzanne When it comes to managing criteria pollutants (such as SO^sub X^, NO^sub X^, mercury and particulates), IGCC has an inherent advantage over conventional coal-fired power plants, because it relies on relatively compact, energy-efficient separation systems that capture pollutants from the coal-derived syngas before it is used to fire the gas turbines. The pre-combustion syngas stream has a much smaller net volume - typically just 1/100th that of the post- combustion...
