Gasification generates green hydrogen and other low-carbon fuels and feedstocks from waste and biomass. With 40 years of gasification experience, Fluor helps clients plan, design and build the optimal gasification, waste/biomass to power and waste/biomass to hydrogen projects to fit their needs.
Gasification for Hydrogen Generation - Waste/Biomass to Hydrogen
A challenge with gasification-derived hydrogen is achieving the required hydrogen availability. Fluor's experience designing refinery hydrogen plants and associated hydrogen purification systems helps develop cost-effective gasification projects that maximize hydrogen production.
When carbon capture technology is applied to the syngas shifted by gasification, the hydrogen generated can be reduced to lower carbon intensity or net zero.
Gasification for Synthetic Natural Gas, Liquids and Chemical Feedstock
Gasification facilities are often designed to produce multiple products. Production of synthetic natural gas, liquids or chemical feedstocks like carbon monoxide, hydrogen and sulfuric acid creates opportunities for design synergies and may improve operating flexibility. Fluor provides experience and capabilities for facilities using gasifier products such as integrated gasification combined cycle (IGCC) for power generation and methanol, ammonia and urea synthesis units.
A product's carbon intensity can be reduced to meet decarbonization goals with utilization of biomass and waste feedstocks. It can be further reduced with pre-combustion carbon capture technologies like the Fluor Solvent℠ Process.
