Coal gasification technology new to U.S.

A $400 million coal gasification plant proposed for the Good Spring area would join just two existing U.S. plants that use the same technology, according to the U.S. Department of Energy.

Bill Purvis, a staffer in the office of communication for the Department of Energy’s Office of Fossil Energy, said there are currently two commercial Integrated Gasification Combined Cycle plants operating in the United States in Polk County, Fla., and Vigo County, Ind. At least a half-dozen more applications are in development around the country.

“They’re very clean, they’re ultra-clean, and they are more efficient than run-of-the-mill plants. So if you built an IGCC and close an older plant, that’s an improvement,â€
