Wisconson Public Services Commission, Clean Coal Study Group


As a part of Conserve Wisconsin, Governor Doyle asked the Public Service Commission (PSC) and the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) to investigate Integrated Gasification Combined Cycle (IGCC) technology and its potential for the future of Wisconsin.

IGCC converts coal into gas. The gas is cleaned and then burned in a combined cycle gas turbine power plant. IGCC dramatically reduces air emissions, water use and industrial waste, but there are unanswered questions about the technology’s reliability and cost.
