SES’ Gasification Technology


Synthesis Energy Systems, Inc. (SES) (synthesisenergy.com) is a clean energy technology company that provides technology, equipment, and engineering services for the conversion of low rank, low cost coal and biomass feedstocks into valuable energy and chemical products.

The company commercializes its patented technology through industry partnerships and collaborations with established and well-capitalized companies, targeting markets that have a strong demand for clean, low-cost energy such as power, methanol and other chemicals, fertilizers, transportation fuels, and substitute natural gas derived from coal and biomass. SES’ unique ability to utilize some of the world’s lowest cost feedstocks translates, in many markets, to the lowest cost energy or chemical product for its customers. 

The company’s advanced gasification process is based on a single-stage, fluidizedbed technology for the production of low-tomedium heating value synthesis gas (syngas) from a wide array of feedstocks including coals, coal wastes, biomass, coal and biomass blends, and other waste fuels by using oxygen, oxygen-enriched air, or air in the gasification reaction. 

SES’ technology was first deployed at its ZaoZhuang (ZZ) plant in Shandong Province, China. The plant has two SES gasifiers which operate at a pressure of 3 bar and with a capacity of up to 400 tons per day (tpd) of coal-based feed for each gasifier. Syngas from this joint venture is used by the local coke producer to supplement methanol production from its coke oven gas.
