The Gasification Technologies Council (GTC) promotes a better understanding of the role gasification can play in providing the power, chemical and refining industries with economically competitive and environmentally conscious technology options to produce electricity, fuels and chemicals and for converting waste and biomass into these same valuable products.
GTC members are involved in all aspects of developing, deploying, and using commercial gasification technologies to produce, process, and use clean synthesis gas for the production of chemicals, fuels, substitute natural gas, and power. GTC member companies are involved in gasification projects -- as plant owners, technology suppliers, or equipment/service suppliers -- that account for 95 percent of world synthesis gas capacity.
