Clean Fuels for our Energy Future


Benefits of LCCE
Benefits of LCCE

Economic Benefits: LCCE will create about 1,500 construction and 200 permanent jobs in Louisiana and support the state economy. LCCE will be a large customer for nearby refineries producing petcoke, energy providers and the Port of Lake Charles

Energy Benefits: LCCE will be a low-cost producer of all its products and is expected to be one of the world’s lowest-cost producer of methanol. The CO2 captured during gasification will be shipped a short distance by pipeline, then used in enhanced oil recovery operations along the Gulf Coast.

Environmental Benefits: LCCE will use petcoke, an energy-rich byproduct from refining crude oil that is often exported , then burned without controls. Our gasification technology will allow us to extract the energy from petcoke while avoiding 90 percent of most emissions.

The Lake Charles Clean Energy plant will use advanced gasification technology to avoid harmful emissions while extracting energy from petcoke.

LCCE will cleanly convert the feedstock chemically under high temperature and pressure to create clean synthesis gas with very low emissions. This low Btu synthesis gas can then be processed into clean end products.

As part of the clean fuels aspect of the LCCE project, approximately 90 percent of the CO2 will be captured.
