Gasification of solid fuels is a partial oxidation process which converse the solid feedstock into syngas which can be used in a large number of applications e.g. power generation, manufacture of various chemicals and fuels (hydrogen, methanol, ammonia, fertilizers etc.). Not all of the gasification systems are suitable for energy vectors poly-generation with carbon capture and storage (CCS). This paper is proposing to evaluate various gasification technologies by mathematical modeling and simulation methods (especially for entrained flow types as these gasifiers are more suitable for implementing carbon capture technologies). In this paper a particular accent will be put on the selection of the most promising gasifier, as not all are appropriate for a carbon capture Integrated Gasification Combined Cycle (IGCC) applied for energy vectors poly-generation (with a particular focus on hydrogen and electricity co-production case) with Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS). For the selection of the most appropriate gasifier technologies the process were mathematical modeled and simulated with process flow modeling software (e.g. ChemCAD, Aspen). In the evaluation of various gasification technologies (e.g. Shell, Siemens, GE-Texaco, Conoco-Phillips etc.) a multi-criteria analysis was performed.
