Plant Applications
Typical gasification-based plants which are currently under development worldwide are:

    Coal-to-Liquids (mainly diesel/kerosene or gasoline)
    Coal-to-SNG (synthetic/substitute natural gas)
    Coal-to-Power (IGCC = integrated gasification combined cycle power plant, mainly with CCS*)
    Petcoke-to-Hydrogen/Power (mainly for applications within refineries)
    Biomass-to-Liquids / Methanol

    *) CCS = carbon capture and storage

Upcoming applications are:

    Petcoke-to-DME (mainly for applications within refineries)
    Coal-to-Syngas for direct reduction in the steel industry (DRI)
