Design and Fabrication of Coal Gasification Plant Prototype
As God has blessed Pakistan with immense coal resources of more than 185.5 billion tones, we can generate
100,000 MW of electricity for 30 years but unfortunately only 150MW power plant based on this coal has been set up. Gas
produced from coal gasification can be used for purpose of energy production and feedback for different industrial
applications. The purpose of this paper is to spread awareness about coal gasification in Pakistan and develop detail
instruction for the fabrication and operation of fixed bed coal gasifier unit. A prototype of fixed bed coal gasifier reactor was
built for the purpose of investigating the performance of coal in term of synthetic gas production. Initially theoretical
calculation is performed and then comparing these results with the experimental results of fixed bed coal gasifier plant.
