The synthane process is one of four new processes for converting coal to substitute natural gas that is proceeding to the large pilot plant scale. One of the principal objectives of the pilot plant is to determine the environmental aspects of the process and to develop the necessary treatment techniques. In the study presented here, the data collected in the small (20 to 40 pounds per hour) gasifier are used to project the environmental impact of a full-scale synthane plant and to estimate the cost of controls. The chars, tars, gases, and water from this gasifier have been extensively analyzed and reported.
