In order to capture the carbon content of coal, one option would be to gasify it with mixtures of, e.g. steam, CO2 and O2, to produce synthesis gas: the water-gas shift (WGS) reaction, CO + H2O <--> CO2 + H2, could then be used to increase the yield of hydrogen. In principle, if the WGS...Read more
