GE Energy, Bechtel Announce Alliance for Cleaner Coal Projects

04 October 2004

GE Energy and Bechtel Corporation today announced their intent to establish an alliance to develop a standard commercial offering for optimized integrated combined-cycle gasification (IGCC) projects in North America.   IGCC systems convert coal and other hydrocarbons into synthetic gas, which after cleanup is used as the primary fuel for a gas turbine in a combined-cycle system. IGCC systems offer significant environmental benefits compared to traditional pulverized coal power plants.
