2010 GTC Conference Wrap-up:

IGCC on the move
despite obstacles

Five US IGCC power projects under construction or being developed will add almost 2500MW over the next 3-5 years.

Once again, a large and far-reaching turnout was attracted by the annual Gasification Technologies Council/EPRI conference attesting to the continued broad interest in the status of project and technology development connected with gasification of coal and other feedstock. 

More than 600 attendees gathered from all over the world attended the 3-day Washington DC event.  The range of topics presented over covered the gamut - from the booming commercial coal-to-chemicals industry in China to the emergence of new gasification-based technologies for the conversion of biomass to synthetic natural gas and liquid fuels.

The November-December issue of Gas Turbine World magazine features comprehensive coverage of  key presentations made at the conference, with focus on major commercial-scale projects under construction and actively under development.  A copy of this convenient wrap-up is now available at this link.
