This report looks at the prospects for IGCC in the Asia Pacific countries of Australia, Canada, China, India, Japan, Republic of Korea, and the USA. Technical developments necessary to take IGCC to full commercial operation as a high efficiency power generation technology with full carbon capture and storage are reviewed. Also addressed are the CCS issues that need to take place alongside the technical developments to ensure that CCS is ready to be deployed for IGCC as the IGCC technology matures. Finally, issues that impact the development and acceptance of IGCC technology such as policy and public attitudes to IGCC are reviewed.
