Download Coal Gasification and Its Applications by David A. Bell,Brian F. Towler,Maohong Fan PDF

By David A. Bell,Brian F. Towler,Maohong Fan

Skyrocketing power bills have spurred renewed curiosity in coal gasification. at the moment to be had details in this topic should be up-to-date, besides the fact that, and occupied with particular coals and finish items. for instance, carbon catch and sequestration, formerly given little awareness, now has a well-known position in coal conversion processes.

This ebook ways coal gasification and comparable applied sciences from a procedure engineering viewpoint, with subject matters selected to help the method engineer who's attracted to an entire, coal-to-products process. It offers a standpoint for engineers and scientists who examine and increase elements of coal conversion processes.

The first subject describes the character and availability of coal. subsequent, the basics of gasification are defined, via an outline of gasification applied sciences and gasoline cleansing techniques. The conversion of syngas to electrical energy, fuels and chemical substances is then mentioned. ultimately, technique economics are coated. Emphasis is given to the choice of gasification expertise according to the kind of coal fed to the gasifier and wanted finish product: E.g., decrease temperature gasifiers produce massive amounts of methane, that is bad in an ammonia synthesis feed. This booklet additionally experiences gasification kinetics that's educated by means of fresh papers and technique layout reports by way of the USA division of strength and different teams, and likewise principally missed by means of different gasification books.
