The report presents: results of a process evaluation of the pressurized fluidized-bed combustion (FBC) system for power generation; preliminary plans and a cost estimate for a 30-MW pressurized FBC boiler development plant; identification of a project team and program to demonstrate FB oil gasification/desulfurization for power generation on a 50-MW plant; and evaluation of pressurized oil gasification for combined-cycle power generation. It identifies no problems which preclude the development of pressurized FBC combined-cycle power plants and FB oil gasification power plants which can generate electrical energy within environmental goals at lower energy costs than competitive systems. Work reported here, a continuation of earlier FBC process evaluation efforts, is aimed at the development and demonstration of these fuel processing systems.
