Fluidized bed processing of high-sulfur fossil fuels is evaluated for economical steam and/or power generation within projected pollution control limits. In fluidized bed combustion the sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides are minimized during the combustion process, and the heat transfer from the burning fuel to evaporating water is facilitated to achieve a more economical boiler system. In fluidized bed gasification a clean fuel gas with minimal sulfur and particulates is produced which can be utilized for power generation at atmospheric pressure in conventional gas-fired boilers or at elevated pressures in a gas-turbine combustor. The report is a condensation of the complete report; all the technical details of the work are contained in Volume II and III which will be released at a later date. No problems have been identified which would preclude the development of fluidized bed combustion boilers. The atmospheric pressure fluidized bed oil gasification concept has been technically demonstrated with a 750 kW development gasification plant.
