CIM Vancouver 2006
Abstract The interest in coal gasification has increased significantly in the last year. The drivers for technology advancements, particularly around gasification include the cost of natural gas and oil, fuel security, a paradigm shift of gasification suppliers, supply chain concerns (hurricanes) and C02 management.
