The report gives results of evaluations of limestones from Texas and Mexico as candidate sulfur sorbents for the chemically active fluid-bed (CAFB) gasification demonstration plant at San Benito, Texas. Preliminary laboratory tests show that three limestones quarried in Texas and one quarried in Mexico should be suitable sorbents, based on availability, chemical characterization, physical characterization, attrition behavior, and chemical reactivity as sulfur sorbents. Current sorbent selection criteria are being refined.
