ASME 2011 Small Modular Reactors Symposium - SMR2011
Interesting papers (6520 and 6554) about a hybrid nuclear/combustion gas turbine plant, Using a helium gas brayton cycle turbine to run a decoupled air compressor for a linked coal gasification syngas powered combustion turbine (with likely combined cycle steam plant which could also be linked with the nuclear side of the plant). Also talking about integrated process heat and synfuel production. Natural gas carrot to try to get nuclear synfuel production capabilities? There is some CAES talk since the air compressor is decoupled which would allow storage, and nuclear heat is available for air reheat when releasing from storage.

Fuel Alternatives to the Power Industry - LPP Combustion LLC
Combustor technology company offering gas turbine combustor retrofits, primarily it seems for Capstone microturbines to run on biofuels. The end goal is a coal fueled IGCC setup, using simpler CTL/GTL gasifier tech, this company's special liquid fuel to synthetic natural gas (methane), and conventional natural gas turbines, to keep costs down by trying to use simple and/or in production hardware. Though you would take a performance hit over a purpose built fully integrated IGCC plant with a syngas or hydrogen turbine

Hybrid Power Technologies, LLC
Odd ball hybrid nuclear/combined cycle gasified coal powerplant design. Uses a gas cooled reactor turbine to drive the combustion turbine's decoupled compressor to get disgustingly high pressure for combustion.

Mitsubishi Heavy to Test CO2 Recovery from Coal-fired Flue Gas -- Tech-On!
Looks like a tech demo of a previous system qualified for gas turbine plants, modified to do more heavy metal and halogen preprocessing removal for coal plant flue gases.

クリーン・コール・デー 財団法人 石炭エネルギーセンター/JCOAL
Clean Coal Day 9/5/2009 in Japan, naturally sponsored by JCoal and JPower. Seems to be promoting IGCC, and I think they're offering plant tours for an IGCC facility. They have ads for this running on the ad TV's in trains around metro Tokyo.

GreatPoint Energy
Uses a steam gasifier with mixed coal/metal catalyst feedstock to produce methane. Catalyst is recovered from gasifier char, output stream cleaned then CO2/methane is separated. Predicated on CO2 carbon sequestration at site to have better CO2 output levels compared to normal supercritical steam coal plant.
