1970 - 1982
Investigation the dust pressure gasification of lignite on a laboratory scale. Construction and operation of a small-scale test plant with a capacity of 0.5 t/h (3 MWth)
Commissioning the demonstration plant for dust pressure gasification of lignite on an industrial scale (175 MWth) in Schwarze Pumpe (GSP)
1984 - 1990
Gasification of 720 t/d lignite with entrained flow gasification in Schwarze Pumpe for the production of town gas
1990 - 2007
Gasification of organic wastes in the entrained flow gasification plant Schwarze Pumpe for the production of 120,000 t/a methanol and generation of 75 MW of electrical energy in an IGCC power plant
The findings from the test and plant operation formed the basis for the conception and construction of the CCG® projects in China from 2007.
