The world’s premier association and foremost authority on gasification is expanding to become the Gasification and Syngas Technologies Council (GSTC).

GSTC, formerly known as the Gasification Technologies Council, will now encompass the syngas production, processing, and conversion industries as well.

“This expansion will allow us to serve the entire value chain of the gasification and syngas industries,” said Alison Kerester, GSTC’s Executive Director. “We’ll provide our members with numerous benefits, including opportunities to develop new business, access important industry data, learn about cutting-edge technologies, and network with top experts and corporate leaders.

“We will be the ‘go to’ organization for all aspects of the syngas and gasification industries,” Kerester added.

Those eligible for GSTC include technology, equipment and service providers, as well as plant owners and operators in the energy, power, chemical, fertilizer, refining, fuel, and waste management industries. GSTC is a global organization, with members from across the Americas, Europe, and Asia.

“We’re excited about bringing together the best of the gasification and syngas industries under one umbrella organization,” said William E. Preston, Chairman of the GSTC and President and COO of KP Engineering. “This will greatly expand our ability to serve operators of – and technology suppliers to – the process industries.”
