This Paper presents comparison of syngas compositions, for all coal ranks, as produced from different types of coal gasification processes currently in use, namely entrained flow, fluidized bed, and fixed bed gasifiers. Cold gas and carbon conversion efficiencies were investigated. The syngas composition varies with the applied gasification process. The importance of this research arises from the fact that gasifiers produce the environmentally clean fuel required to run any Integrated Gasification Combined Cycle power system. A procedure was conducted to get estimates for bituminous coal. It is important to have knowledge of the chemical reactions which take place in each gasifier and the raw syngas produced from the specific reaction involved to develop an Integrated Coal Gasification Combined Power Generation plant with CO2 recovery in order to increase the cycle efficiency and mitigate CO2 emission and other pollutants. The results indicate that the entrained flow gasifier is the dominant one.
