Coal and biomass are of interest today as alternatives to conventional combustion turbine fuels. Significant processing is required for these fuels to be used in combustion turbine applications. Westinghouse is developing and demonstrating technologies for fuel processing, hot gas cleaning, and fuel gas combustion, and is assessing combustion turbine adaptations for coal and biomass fuels. This paper reviews the status of Westinghouse development and demonstration activities for the use of coal and biomass fuels in advanced power generation systems incorporating combustion turbines for pressurized fluidized bed combustion (PFBC), integrated gasification combined cycles (IGCC), and direct coal-fired (DCF) cycle configurations.
