A process for the production of low-Btu gas from bituminous coals via fluid bed gasification is described. Coal processing consists of pretreatment, gasification, and final burnup. Hot fuel gas is desulfurized with half-calcined dolomite and cleaned of particulates in high-pressure drop cyclones. The sulfur acceptor is regenerated with steam and CO2. A liquid-phase Claus reactor is used to process the H2S in the regenerator offgas into elemental sulfur. Experimental data are presented which demonstrated feasibility of the major process steps. An economic evaluation of gas clean-up operations shows that regenerative use of acceptor is preferable to once-through, and that removal of particulates via cyclones, if feasible, is cheaper than water scrubbing with subsequent reheat. The cost of the gas desulfurization process including sorbent regeneration and sulfur recovery is of the order of 20 cents/MM Btu of product gas. (Modified author abstract)
