The report gives results of a program for design and operational planning of facilities for testing the Meyers Process for chemical removal of pyritic sulfur from coal. Two options were evaluated: a complete pilot plant test of the process at a 0.5-ton per hour scale; and scale-up and testing of only the most critical portion of the process, the reactor and regenerator section (reactor testing unit). The report includes: a summary of background process data; a discussion of the pilot plant design; pilot plant start-up and operational test plans; and the preliminary design, start-up, and test approach for the reactor testing unit. It also includes: process flow diagrams for the complete pilot plant; pilot plant mass balance computer program; pilot plant plot plans and a sketch of the facility; complete pilot plant equipment list; critical path schedule for construction of the pilot plant; preliminary process flow diagrams for the reactor testing unit approach; preliminary reactor test unit plot plans and a sketch of the facility; and reactor test unit equipment list.
