Abstract
An on site visit was made to a 15 ton/day process developing unit (PDU) which produces a hot, low Btu fuel gas for power generation using a combined cycle power generating facility. At the facility coal and dolomite were crushed, sized, and dried prior to being fed to the gasification system. Hot fuel gases were cleaned of particulates and combusted with air; the gases were expanded through a gas turbine to produce electricity. Exhaust gases from the turbine generate steam in a heat recovery steam generator. The following attachments were included to define the safety and health program in place at this facility: emergency plan, safety procedures, safety training procedures, operating procedure for a nuclear radiation gauge, noise survey, utilities building, coal tar health hazards, monitoring of air quality, protective clothing, and radiation work permit. The author concludes that the industrial hygiene characterization program for coal gasification should be conducted at the pilot facility level, if possible.
