Title: British Gas/Lurgi Slagging Gasifier a springboard into synfuels

The most developed and widely used fixed bed pressure gasification systems are based on the Lurgi Gasification Process. The British Gas/Lurgi Slagging Gasifier results from the joing together of British Gas Corporation and Lurgi Company technology. The British Gas Slagging Gasification technology offers significant advantages over dry bottom Lurgi and other fixed bed gasification systems. The slagging gasifier has more advantages than disadvantages when compared with entrained flow gasifiers and these advantages are sufficient to give it an economic advnatage in most process situations. The processing of crude Slagging Gasifier gas and the multifarious uses of the resulting clean gas in the chemicals, power generation and fuel gas fields are described. The environmental impact of the process is also discussed and plans for commercialization are considered. 21 refs.
