This volume of the report summarizes results of an evaluation of an atmospheric-pressure fluidized bed residual oil gasification/desulfurization process, as the chemically active fluidized bed (CAFB) process. The (CAFB) produces a clean, low heating value fuel gas for firing in a conventional boiler. The integrated process, has demonstrated the ability to meet environmental emission standards for sulfur oxides, nitrogen oxides, and particulates. Work carried out under this contract was directed toward completion of a preliminary design and cost estimate for a 50 MW demonstration plant and a 200 MW plant design and cost estimate. Several process and design options are evaluated. Process flow diagrams, energy and material balances, equipment specifications, vessel drawings, equipment arrangement drawings, a site plan, an electrical one-line drawing, and utility requirements are presented for the recommended process concept. Plant performance, environmental impact, and functional operating conditions are presented and development requirements identified. Capital and operating costs are presented for the 50 MW demonstration plant and for commercial plants with capacities from 50 to 500 MW. Limestone sorbent support data is given.
