Title (EN) SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR PRODUCING SUBSTITUTE NATURAL GAS FROM COAL
(FR) SYSTÈME ET PROCÉDÉ DE PRODUCTION D'UN GAZ NATUREL DE SUBSTITUTION À PARTIR DU CHARBON
Abstract: front page image
(EN)The present invention provides a system and method for producing substitute natural gas and electricity, while mitigating production of any greenhouse gasses. The system includes a hydrogasification reactor, to form a gas stream including natural gas and a char stream, and an oxygen burner to combust the char material to form carbon oxides. The system also includes an algae farm to convert the carbon oxides to hydrocarbon material and oxygen.
(FR)La présente invention concerne un système et un procédé permettant de produire un gaz naturel de substitution et de l'électricité, tout en limitant la production de gaz à effet de serre. Ledit système comprend un réacteur d'hydro-gazéification, chargé de former un courant gazeux comprenant du gaz naturel et un courant de matière carbonisée, et un brûleur à oxygène chargé de brûler la matière carbonisée pour former des oxydes de carbone. Le système inclut également un élevage d'algues chargées de convertir les oxydes de carbone en matière hydrocarbonée et en oxygène.
