The report compiles background information, including environmental considerations, on the potential for retrofitting existing industrial processes to the use of low- and intermediate-energy gas from coal. Potential problems in retrofitting processes are analyzed. Processes where retrofit is most attractive are identified, along with estimates of their annual energy requirements. Also, current commercially available gasification systems and representative gas cleanup systems are described and available data summarized.
