Announcement for application
preparation instructions.

The objective of this topic is to solicit Research and Development (R D)
proposals to focus on technologies capable of co-production of substitute
natural gas (SNG), electricity, and other products while also achieving
near-zero emissions of pollutants and capturing and sequestering carbon
dioxide. Rising natural gas costs coupled with potential supply
uncertainties
has caused numerous problems in both the utility as well as the industrial
sectors in the U.S. Many utilities have either been shut off from natural
gas
supplies for their natural gas-fired gas turbines, resulting in existing
units
being shut down, or are considering fuel switching because of high natural
gas
prices. In the industrial sector, rising natural gas prices have had a
negative affect on its balance of trade and has forced many companies to
close
domestic facilities and export production to places having lower feedstock
costs. As natural gas will continue to play a major role in the domestic
economy of the U.S. for years to come, the DOE is interested in developing
novel coal gasification processes that co-produce synthetic natural gas,
electricity, and other products, as a means to reduce potential dependence
on
foreign natural gas and to maintain the U.S. manufacturing base. The
overall
process benefit description must include: 1) the assumed cost of natural
gas
and other products, perhaps varying over time, 2) justification that the
process is economically competitive with natural gas, and 3) the expected
scale
of the commercial co-production plant and why this plant size is the most
economical. The overall size of the gasification-based co-production plant

shall be no smaller than 100 MWe equivalent in output. The process
developed
should approach the goal to achieve a SNG cost of less than $5/MMBtu.

(Estimated total available funds = up to $6,000,000 for Phases I and II, up
to
two projects, three to four years duration; up to $6,000,000 for Phase III,
one
project, two to three years duration)
