Physical Description

born digtal

abstract
This project involves a coal-to-liquids via indirect coal liquefaction. The primary product of this facility is Fischer-Tropsch diesel. To achieve a production of 15,000 bbl/day of sulfur-free Fischer-Tropsch diesel, the coal feed will be 17,400 tons/day. The processes used in this plant are gasification, air-separation, water gas shift, acid gas removal, Fischer-Tropsch synthesis, product upgrade, and electricity generation. The project is economically viable if the price of crude is above about $70/bbl. One of the major issues with this plant is utilization or disposal of produced carbon dioxide, given the fact that coal has the highest carbon intensity among fossil fuels. Future legislation regarding carbon dioxide capture and sequestration will dictate profitability for this facility.
