The report gives an overview of low- and medium-Btu gasification systems. It describes systems or combinations of processes which are likely to be used for production of low- and medium-Btu gas from coal. This involves making judgments as to types of coals that will be processed, types of gasifiers (and auxiliary processes) which will be employed, and markets which will develop for gas from coal. The report is divided into three main sections: Status of Technology gives a relatively broad definition of future prospects for coal gasification; Description of Technology gives more specific information on processes that are likely to be used commercially; and Environmental Impacts discusses the kinds of pollutant discharges that must be anticipated. Low- and medium-Btu gasification systems can be supplied to meet some industrial fuel requirements. Work is needed to develop a better understanding of both the potential of discharge streams for adverse effects and control technology and development needs.
