TransGas converts coal into synthesis gas (syngas) and liquid fuels using proven technology with such a clean process that it was fully permitted as a "Minor Source" under U.S. EPA guidelines.
TransGas also employs clean coal gasification to convert coal into nitrogenous fertilizers, such as urea and UAN.
TransGas uses proven Uhde PRENFLO® Coal Gasification technology. The PRENFLO® operation in Puertollano, Spain, is the world's largest solid-fuel-based International Green Construction Code (IGCC) power plant.
Currently, TransGas has sited 3 of these projects in the coal-rich states of West Virginia and Kentucky in the United States of America and also 2 new projects in the state of Rio Grande do Sul in Brazil.
