A new conceptual water-gas-shift (WGS) process is designed for integrated gasification combined cycle (IGCC), using membrane reactor (MR) equipped with H<inf>2</inf>-permselective zeolite membranes for the WGS reaction. The new process makes it possible to capture CO<inf>2</inf> before power generation process by converting CO in the syngas to CO<inf>2</inf> which can be collected after WGS reaction. The new process also produces purer H<inf>2</inf> for combustion in gas turbine. Conceptual design of the MR, mass and heat balance analysis, and cost estimation of the new process are also provided in this paper.
