PurGen is an Integrated Gasification Combined Cycle (IGCC) power plant, with carbon capture and sequestration, to be located in Linden, NJ. Easily available coal arrives by rail or barge and is then converted to a synthetic gas. During this process, harmful sulfur and mercury is safely removed. Carbon dioxide is then separated and safely stored deep under the earth’s surface far offshore.
PurGen will help reduce our state’s dependence on dirty coal plants in and out of New Jersey, helping improve our region’s air quality. PurGen is NOT a coal fired power plant! Is NOT experimental! And will NOT cause air pollution!
