As air, instead of pure oxygen, is used, the product gas inevitably contains a large concentration of undesirable constituents
Over the years, Coal Age has had the courage to speak out about safety conditions and labor practices as well as political forces that unfairly reshaped the market. The coal business has some colorful characters, who unabashedly square off against the media and politicians.
Last Saturday over 250 people came to a meeting on underground coal gasification organised by Nia Griffith MP and local Labour councillors in Burry Port Memorial Hall. After Nia Griffith, who was chairing the meeting had welcomed everyone, she invited Hugh Towns, a senior planning officer with Carmarthenshire County Council to explain how the planning process would work.
Residents, nonprofits and North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality staffers gathered at Maiden High School on Wednesday to discuss the closure of Marshall Steam Station's coal ash basin. The DEQ led the public meeting, allowed residents to ask

Southern Company and the global engineering firm KBR spent a decade perfecting the gasification process, called Transport Integrated Gasification, or TRIG, at a U.S. Department of Energy-sponsored research facility near Wilsonville, Ala. Gasification is a more controlled kind of combustion; instead of burning the coal directly, it breaks it down into basic, chemical components.
2016/7/25Friends of the Earth Scotland have today (25 July) published a report setting out the serious dangers that Underground Coal Gasification poses in terms of climate change, local environmental impacts, and public health.  Friends of the Earth is the U.S. voice of the world's largest grassroots environmental network, with member groups in 77 countries.
2009/2/19Coal ash is the collective term for the various solid remnants left over from burning the black rock to produce electricity at more than 500 power plants nationwide. The ash amounts to dirty stuff, replete with toxic constituents — arsenic, chromium, lead, mercury, and many others — that can wreak havoc on the environment and human health.
Over the ensuing decades, Eastman Chemical's interests expanded to include coal gasification. Its Chemicals from Coal facility located in Kingsport, Tenn. (Figure 1) was the first commercial-scale coal gasification plant in the U.S., and it has now been operating continuously for over 20 years.
The Queensland government has immediately banned underground coal gasification in the state, arguing the environmental risks outweigh economic benefits. Natural Resources Minister Dr Anthony Lynham says the ban, which would apply immediately as government policy, would be made official by the end of the year through legislation introduced into parliament.
Water Gas Reaction There are several steps in coal gasification. Let's focus on step 1: conversion of the solid coal to a burnable gas. In the gasifier, crushed coal is combined with steam at high pressure and temperature. The quantity of oxygen is limited to prevent
2011/1/1This study found the most efficient supply chain to be coal gasification and pipeline transport, with a total energy efficiency of 30%. Environmentally, the best option was to produce hydrogen via steam reformation of natural gas and pipeline transport based on the criteria of global warming, human toxicity, photochemical oxidation, acidification, and eutrophication.
In the low-oxygen, reducing environment of the gasifier, most of the feedstock's sulfur coverts to hydrogen sulfide (H 2 S), with a small amount forming carbonyl sulfide (COS). Nitrogen chemically bound in the feed generally converts to gaseous nitrogen (N 2), with some ammonia (NH 3), and a small amount forming hydrogen cyanide (HCN).). Chlorine is primary converted to hydrogen chlori
Home Products residents voice concerns over coal gasification DKRW considers downsizing proposed coal gasification plant, DKRW considers downsizing proposed coal gasification plant, residents doubtful, But the company gave up on the public funding in 2012 after concerns over government loans to the bankrupt solar .
2020/9/11All over the developed world, almost half the investment is put in control systems to reduce toxic emissions such as mercury, cadmium, lead, dioxins, furans, volatile organic compounds etc. For example a 2000 MT per day incinerator can cost upwards of $500 million in Europe, half of the cost being put into emission control.
Our Forth warmly welcome the Scottish's Government's announcement today of a Moratorium on Underground Coal Gasification. Details here We urge people all over Scotland to take heart from this development and add their voices to the call for a complete ban on all unconventional gas in Scotland by joining hands with other Scottish communities on Sunday 11th October at 2pm on the Forth Road

Gasification for chemicals has been, and will remain, the most important gasification application for the foreseeable future. A recent study conducted by Higman and Tam determined that about 25% of the world's ammonia and over 30% of the world's methanol are now being produced via gasification (as compared to 10 % in each case ten years ago).
2017/5/26Biomass gasification has been regarded as a promising technology to utilize bioenergy sustainably. However, further exploitation of biomass gasification still needs to overcome a significant number of technological and logistic challenges. In this chapter, the current development status of biomass gasification, especially for the activities in China, has been presented. The biomass
Over 100 people attended a meeting with the Task Force in Estevan, and over 200 people attended a meeting with the Task Force in Coronach. They voiced their concerns about the transition, including the impacts on children, families, home values, and the overall future of their communities.
