Abstract

High-temperature gasification of coal provides a clearly defined raw gas with carbon monoxide and hydrogen as the main constituents, which can be processed using conventional gas treatment techniques to synthesis gas, hydrogen for hydrogeneration processes, reduction gas and fuel gas. The Prenflo process for the gasification of coal under pressure is based on the commercially proven Koppers-Totzek process for the gasification of coal dust at low pressure using pure oxygen. The key development phase, the demonstration of the long term availability of the Prenflo system and its components in a pilot plant with a throughput of 48 t/d coal dust, has reached a technical status that justifies the planning and construction of a 1200 t/day Prenflo module. The particular economic appeal gives rise to expectations that the first industrial application of this process will be in the field of power generation from coal.
