Abstract

Integrated Gasification Combined Cycle (IGCC) as a remediation for EHR reduction O. Barra*, A. Barra^, F. Buono^ , A.

Abstract The paper is aimed to introduce the IGCC technology as a remediation for environmental impact reduction; a new model in progress, capable to simulate the basic phenomena of fluidised bed reactor in gasifier for heavy oil, coal and urban solid wastes, is presented. The importance of the paper is due to the fastly growing interest in the world for the application of IGCC to waste treatment and sustainable energy production: in fact, whereas the incineration process is today the most common technology, the much more "cleaning" potential of the gasification technology candidates the IGCC as the true EHR remediation
