- An assessment of the status of technology of solvent refined coal (SRC) production and utilization and low Btu gasification/combined cycle power generation (LBG/CCPG) systems was made. The assessment included an analysis of, among other things, the relative potential for commercial application, energy conversion efficiencies and economics. The potential for commercial application of these two technologies was found to depend on certain institutional barriers and solution of a few technological problems. Energy conversion efficiency for SRC production and utilization for generation of electricity was found to be comparable to conventional plants with flue gas desulfurization systems. Energy conversion efficiency for combined cycle plants was found to be higher than that of conventional plants. Cost of electricity generated by plants based on these two technologies was found to be higher at present but in the future it was projected to be comparable.
