Materials Science Division Coal Technology Quarterly Report: January-March 1976

Date: 1976?
Creator: Argonne National Laboratory
Description: Quarterly report of the Argonne National Laboratory Materials Science Division regarding the evaluation of ceramic refractories to withstand abrasion-corrosion by coal slag that will be encountered in the Bituminous Coal Research (BCR) Bi-Gas coal-gasification pilot plant, development of computer models to predict corrosion and erosion behavior of materials, and analysis of pilot-plant components that have failed or are removed from service for other reasons.

Materials Science Division Coal Technology Quarterly Report: October-December 1976

Date: 1977?
Creator: Argonne National Laboratory
Description: Quarterly report of the Argonne National Laboratory Materials Science Division regarding coal technology research and development. This report discusses a project for the economical conversion of coal into cleaner and more usable fuels: evaluation of ceramic-refractories exposed to abrasion-corrosion caused by coal slag, evaluation of ceramic coatings and refractories exposed to erosive environments, development of nondestructive evaluation methods applicable to coal-conversion systems, development of analytical models to predict corrosion behavior, and analysis of failed coal-gasification plant components.

Preliminary Assessment of the Health and Environmental Effects of Coal Utilization in the Midwest. Volume 1. Energy Scenarios, Technology Characterizations, Air and Water Resource Impacts, and Health Effects

Preliminary Assessment of the Health and Environmental Effects of Coal Utilization in the Midwest. Volume 1. Energy Scenarios, Technology Characterizations, Air and Water Resource Impacts, and Health Effects

Date: January 1977
Creator: Argonne National Laboratory
Description: This report presents an initial evaluation of the major health and environmental issues associated with increased coal use in the six midwestern states of Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio, and Wisconsin is presented. Using an integrated assessment approach, the evaluation proceeds from a base-line scenario of energy demand and facility siting for the period 1975 to 2020. Emphasis is placed on impacts from coal extraction, land reclamation, coal combustion for electrical generation, and coal gasification. The range of potential impacts and constraints is illustrated by a second scenario that represents an expected upper limit for coal utilization in Illinois. Included are: (1) a characterization of the energy demand and siting scenarios, coal related technologies, and coal resources, and (2) the related impacts on air quality, water availability, water quality, and human health.

Preliminary Assessment of the Health and Environmental Impacts of Fluidized-Bed Combustion of Coal as Applied to Electrical Utility Systems

Preliminary Assessment of the Health and Environmental Impacts of Fluidized-Bed Combustion of Coal as Applied to Electrical Utility Systems

Date: February 1977
Creator: Argonne National Laboratory
Description: The objective of this study was to assess the health and environmental impacts of fluidized-bed combustion of coal (FBC), specifically as applied to base-load generation of electrical energy by utilities. The public health impacts of Fluidized-Bed Combustion (FBC) plants are expected to be quite similar to those for Low Sulfur Coal (LSC) and Flue Gas Desulfurization (FGD) plants because all appear to be able to meet Federal emission standards; however, there are emissions not covered by standards. Hydrocarbon emissions are higher and trace element emissions are lower for FBC than for conventional technologies. For FBC, based on an analytical model and a single emission data point, the polycyclic organic material decreases the anticipated lifespan of the highly exposed public very slightly. Added health protection due to lower trace element emissions is not known. Although there is a large quantity of solid wastes from the generating plant, the environmental impact of the FBC technology due to solid residue appears lower than for FGD, where sludge management requires larger land areas and presents problems due to the environmentally noxious calcium sulfite in the waste. Fixing the sludge may become a requirement that increases the cost of wet-limestone FGD but makes that system ...
