IGCC (Integrated coal Gasification Combined Cycle Power Plants)
[ Thermal Power Plant ]

The IGCC is a highly efficient and environmentally friendly next-generation thermal power system achieved through coal gasification.
The significantly enhanced power generation efficiency and environmental performance of IGCC are achieved by combining coal gasification and the Gas Turbine Combined Cycle (GTCC) system. Large-type IGCC can improve power generation efficiency by approximately 15% while reducing CO2 emissions compared with conventional coal-fired thermal power systems. Mitsubishi Power is the world-leading provider of IGCC technology and retains two types of coal gasification technology, namely, air-blown and oxygen-blown technologies. Due to its ability to effectively utilize coal resources as well as protect the environment, IGCC has been gaining world-wide interest, and the demand for the system is expected to grow further.
