Indirect gasification of Brown Coal is an upcoming technology that can be used to not only produce electricity from coal, but also produce chemicals and fuels. It also provides the possibility to capture CO2 in a highly concentrated gas, reducing the emissions to the environment. Indirect gasification combines the advantages of combustion (full conversion of the fuel) and pyrolysis (valuable products and concentrated CO2) into one technology. This combination is key in achieving an energy system making the best use of Victorian Brown Coal.
