The Chemically Active Fluid Bed (CAFB) process involves the desulfurization of a fuel oil using a hot fluidized bed of lime to oxidize and gasify the oil. The lime is then regenerated and reused. The present report discusses the following: Survey operating characteristics of two limestones and one residual fuel oil to determine their suitability; Select the best of the two stones for further testing; Construct two new batch reactor CAFB laboratory experimental units; Measure the effects of important operating variables on the CAFB process using batch reactor experiments with the selected oil-limestone combination; Operate for 200 hours of gasification a continuous CAFB gasification pilot plant.
