Chapters 1 and 7 detail syngas generation technologies and their use in established and developing applications for power production as well as chemical synthesis. Syngas is receiving renewed interest, as it can be flexibly generated from a variety of nonpetroleum, renewable feedstocks. In addition, syngas production, along with the implementation of carbon capture and storage (CCS) technologies (Chiesa et al., 2005), has the potential for substantially “greening” fossil fuel and biomass energy resource use, particularly when polygeneration of fuels, chemical products, and electrical power generation are integrated with CCS (Larson et al., 2009).
