Title: Kemper County IGCC Final Project Report

Abstract

The Kemper County IGCC plant was a lignite-fueled 2-on-1 Integrated Gasification Combined-Cycle (IGCC) facility that demonstrated the air-blown Transport Integrated Gasification (TRIG™) technology jointly developed by Southern Company, KBR, Inc. (KBR), and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) at the Power Systems Development Facility (PSDF) in Wilsonville, Ala. The plant is owned by Mississippi Power Company (MPC) and has a calculated nameplate capacity of 830 MW with a peak net output of 582 MW. As a result of advanced emissions control equipment, the facility is designed to produce marketable products of ammonia (NH3), sulfuric acid (H2SO4), and carbon dioxide (CO2). The plant is designed to capture 65 percent of the carbon producing a CO2 stream for use in enhanced oil recovery (EOR), making the plant carbon emissions comparable to those of a natural gas-fired combined cycle power plant. This report describes operation activities post commissioning of the plant and through suspension of the facility. This includes first coal feed testing and syngas production for combustion within the combustion turbine up to the final day of operation.
