The report presents a conceptual design and an economic evaluation of a 9070 metric ton per day plant for the chemical removal of pyritic sulfur from coal. All supporting facilities are included for a self-sufficient operating complex with purchased water and power. The process engineering is complete through a capital cost estimate. Computer augmented studies are included for the material and energy balances, selection of the reactor systems, monitoring of operating parameters, and economic sensitivity studies of process alternatives.
