Abstract

•The impact of biomass gas quantity and quality on the performance and economics of co-firing at a NGCC power plant is assessed, including the impact of capture.•Three co-firing levels (5%, 20%, 40%) and three biomass gasification technologies (atmospheric air-blown gasification, pressurized oxygen-blown gasification and atmospheric indirectly heated gasification) were evaluated.•The results show that the type of the gasification technology did not have a major impact on plant efficiency, emission intensity or cost of electricity of co-firing.•Different economic conditions were assessed to evaluate the conditions were required to make co-firing cost competitive. Modest incentives (carbon price>27 $/t CO2 and REC>10 $/MWh or combination of both at lower levels) were found to be sufficient to encourage co-firing.
