A process analysis of the Lurgi Dry Ash Gasification Process for high Btu gas was carried out. The process has been reviewed from the standpoint of its potential for affecting the environment. The waste stream compositions were calculated for a 250 MM scfd synthetic natural gas plant using a subbituminous coal. Thus, the quantities of solid, liquid, and gaseous pollutants were estimated, where possible. The thermal efficiency for various process alternatives was calculated. A number of process modifications which would reduce pollution and/or increase thermal efficiency were suggested. The technology needs to control pollution were assessed.
