Pres At 165th Nat Meeting of ACS Div of Fuel Chem Dallas Tex 1973 Apr; :24 pages
The work on catalysis reviewed thus far does not include gasification at elevated pressures nor the use of volatile coals. The bench-scale work now reported compares the catalytic activity of various additives in the gasification of volatile coals with steam under pressure and studies other process parameters of interest such as gasification temperature, type of contact with the catalyst, degree of gasification, and repeated use of a catalyst. Results of pilot plant gasification tests using additives are also reported.
