High energy efficiency steam cycle through gasfication. Gasification and gas cleaning open potential for high electrical efficiencies Experiences of 1st commercial size plant (250,000 tn/a, 50 MW electricity. New possibilities for co-fire waste in PC boilers through gasification minimizing capital expenses and maximizing energy efficiency Real life experiences of plant operation will be shared.
