The Texaco Gasification Power Systems integrate Texaco’s proprietary gasification technology wìth proven power generation and energy recovery schemes for efficient and environmentally-superior fuel utilisation. Texaco's commercial experience on gasification spans a period of over 40 years. During this time, the Texaco Gasification Process has beeen used primarily to manufacture synthesis gas for chemical applications in one hundred commercial installations world-wide.
Power generation using the Texaco Gasification Power Systems (TGPS) concept has been successfully demonstrated at the Texaco-sponsored Cool Water Coal Gasification Program in California. The environmental superiority of this technology was demonstrated by the consistent performance of Cool Water ìn exceeding the strict emission standards of the state of California, Currently, several TGPS projects are under evaluation world-wide for power generation in the range of 90MW to 1300MW.
