The "Zero Emission Carbon Technology" (ZECA) process aims to produce hydrogen without combustion and to generate electric power via a solid-oxide fuel cell. One of the process stages involves high-pressure steam/hydrogen gasification of coal at temperatures between 850 - 950 degrees C. The present study made use of a high-pressure wire-mesh reactor to gain detailed information and improve our understanding of reactions that will occur in the gasifier stage of this process.
