Clean Combustion of Coal Derived Liquids
The LPP Combustion System converts alternative liquid fuels, such as coal liquids, naphtha,
#2 fuel oil or biofuels into a synthetic natural gas. This LPP gas can then be burned with
low emissions in virtually any combustion device in place of natural gas, providing users
substantial fuel flexibility.
The LPP system burning coal liquids or naphtha in a dry low
emission (DLE) gas turbine creates a low emissions power
plant. By combining the LPP Combustion System technology
with the Gas-to-Liquids (GTL) process, IGCC operation is made
more flexible and the overall economics are improved.

Benefits of Using the LPP Technology with Coal Liquids
- Emissions of criteria pollutants (NOx, CO, SOx, PM) with coal liquids, such as naphtha, are similar or lower than natural gas levels.
- Significant improvement in the IGCC value proposition may be realized by using side stream
products, such as naphtha, as a
feed stock for the LPP Technology.
- Reduce the plant capital cost since
a spare gasifier may not be
needed for coal gasification when
the LPP Technology is used.
- Reduce the CO2 footprint by blending
biofuels with coal derived liquids.
- Separation of the ownership and
operation of the coal to liquids
(CTL) and the power blocks.
- Beneficial use of waste nitrogen (N2) produced by the air separation unit of the coal gasification plant.
