Co-Production of Substitute Natural Gas / Electricity Via Catalytic Coal Gasification


Performer: Research Technology Institute (RTI)

Project No: FC26-06NT42760


Project Description

The overall objective of this project is to develop a commercial application for co-production of electricity and substitute natural gas (SNG) based on a transport reactor-based pyrolysis process, a catalytic fluid-bed reactor for additional methane production and high-temperature high-pressure CO2, sulfur, and ammonia treatments that can produce SNG at a cost of <$5 / MMBtu and produce a high-pressure CO2 by-product stream permitting sequestration of >90% of the CO2 generated.
