Gasification is getting a lot of attention over last few years as the worldwide demand for energy, synthetic fuels, fertilizers and chemicals is growing rapidly. Gasification is a technology that takes low cost fuel resources such as coal, biomass, heavy oil and turn them into gas products such as syngas (CO, H2) which in turn can be used in a variety of applications to produce high value products mentioned above. Gasification process involves complex chemical operations, heat exchangers and in some cases turbo machinery, thus providing numerous challenging process integration/intensification opportunities. Process innovations in this important field is can lower the overall cost of products, green house gas footprint and water usage of many industrial applications listed above. We would like to invite papers discussing advanced process innovation/intensification/integration ideas related to gasification related plants and unit operations including Air Separation Unit, Syngas Clean-up, Water Gas Shift reactors, other syngas conversion reactions, CO2 capture and Power Island.
