The paper discusses a joint program (The U.S. Department of Energy, the Gas Research Institute, and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency) to develop performance data, design parameters, conceptual designs, and cost estimates for treating wastewaters from a fluidized-bed coal gasification plant. Preliminary results indicate that wastewater can be effectively treated by current technology. At this time the unit operations being evaluated are performing according to expectations. Results from bench-scale studies represent a first step in the development of a basis of design for treating these wastewaters. These data will also be used to develop conceptual designs from which cost estimates for wastewater treatment for a commercial-scale fluidized-bed coal gasification facility will be prepared.
