The report gives results of a source test and evaluation of the Foster Wheeler/Stoic gasifier at the University of Minnesota-Duluth. The test, from February 23 to March 6, 1981, was designed to collect data pertinent to an environmental assessment of the Foster Wheeler/Stoic two-stage gasification process, including evaluation of the emissions from the combustion of both the product gas and the byproduct electrostatic precipitator (ESP) oil. Distribution of minor and trace elements in the product, byproduct, and discharge streams was calculated from elemental mass flow rates. Extractable organic material in product gas, byproduct ESP oil, and discharge streams was characterized by total organic loading and by gas chromatographic analysis. Priority pollutants were identified and quantitated for major streams. Test results indicated that combustion of ESP oil and product gas destroyed priority organic pollutants to the extent that less than 1 percent of the original levels were detected. Also, most of the hydrocarbons (C1-C6) present in the combined product gas were destroyed by combustion.
