State-of-the-art in coal-fired power generation is 42% equivalent power generation efficiency. Using CO2 gas capture (IGCC ), a portion of the exhaust gas CO2 is recycled to the system, and almost all coal CO2 can recovered with high efficiency. We have the prospect to commercialise this system by 2035.
