Abstract

A detailed plant-level evaluation of the rates of water consumption has been performed for five United States coals which are being considered as possible feedstocks for coal gasification processes. The consumptive rates of process water, cooling water and boiler water for a 250 million-SCFD SYNTHANE plant and its auxiliary facilities are estimated by a computerized material-energy balance. Theoretical bases are developed to determine the limits for rates of process water and cooling water consumption. The variation in the rates of water consumption due to coal composition and SYNTHANE process alternative are discussed.
