This study presents an attempt to provide a plant-level analysis that identified the key factors affecting rates of water consumption for the ″Synthane″ coal gasification process. The major factors included in the analysis are the coal composition and the Synthane process alternatives for waste treatment, gas purification and cooling water. Theoretical bases are developed to determine the limits for rates of process water and cooling water consumption. These limits are compared with rates of process water and cooling water consumption determined by a detailed material-energy balance for a hypothetical Synthane plant.
