The Bruceton process for making a supplemental natural gas from coal consists of gasification, purification, and methanation steps. The advantages of the system are that caking coals can be used in the fluid-bed gasifier, and more than half of the methane can be made in the gasifier instead of in the methanator. Furthermore, the final product contains no sulfur and has a heating value exceeding 900 btu/cu ft.
