Mississippi Power Produces Syngas

Mississippi Power announced it has started producing syngas using lignite at the Kemper County energy facility, the most significant milestone at the plant to date.
An integral aspect of the plant’s operations, syngas is created when locally mined lignite is heated at high temperatures in the plant’s gasifiers, converting the coal to gas. To produce electricity, the plant is designed to use syngas similarly to natural gas to power a turbine.
