The report gives results of initial runs of a pilot-scale coal gasification and gas cleaning plant at North Carolina State University. In these runs, a devolatilized Western Kentucky No. 11 bituminous coal was gasified with steam and oxygen, and chilled methanol was used as the acid-gas removal solvent. Material balances were obtained for major elements and trace elements judged to be both volatile and environmentally hazardous. Emissions of sulfur gases in the various plant effluent streams were also measured.
