Uhde® Entrained-Flow Gasification With Steam Generation (PSG)

The uhde® entrained-flow gasification process with steam generation, which operates at elevated pressure, can be used to gasify all types of solid feedstocks (coal, petroleum, coke and biomass). It is a further development of the Koppers-Totzek process developed in the 1940s, which operates at atmospheric pressure and was specially designed for power generation applications.

The lessons learnt from more than two decades of experience in operating the uhde® PSG entrained-flow gasification process have consistently formed the basis for subsequent successful applications.

INPUT: high rank feedstocks with low ash content, or low ash softening point.

OUTPUT: CO-rich syngas as well as electrical power with high efficiency.
