Scale-up research in a dual fluidized bed gasification process
Miha Narobe, Janvit Golob, Jernej Mele, Mihael Sekavčnik, Andrej Senegačnik, Dušan Klinar, 2015, original scientific article

Abstract: A successful co-gasification of plastics and biomass was achieved in the 100 kW dual fluidized bed (DFB) gasification pilot plant. The results of a pilot plant experiment were used as a sound basis for scale-up prediction to 750 kW semiindustrial DFB plant. By an eightfold increase of mass and heat flows a rather simplified co-gasification process was predicted. Namely, the losses occurring in gasification plants are expected to be relatively smaller in larger plants. The effect of decreased losses was studied with an equilibrium model. Three different situations were simulated with the following fixed values of losses: 70 kW, 115 kW and 160 kW. The model showed an increase in fuel conversion when losses were reduced.
Keywords: gasification, simulation, dual fluidized bed reactor, scale up

Underground coal gasification - the Velenje coal mine energy and economic calculations
Damjan Konovšek, Zdravko Praunseis, Jurij Avsec, Gorazd Berčič, Andrej Pohar, Simon Zavšek, Milan Medved, 2017, original scientific article

Abstract: Underground coal gasification (UCG) is a viable possibility for the exploitation of vast coal deposits that are unreachable by conventional mining and can meet the energy, economic and environmental demands of the 21st century. Due to the complexity of the process, and the site-specific coal and seam properties, it is important to acknowledge all the available data and past experiences, in order to conduct a successful UCG operation. Slovenia has huge unmined reserves of coal, and therefore offers the possibility of an alternative use of this domestic primary energy source. According to the available underground coal gasification technology, the energy and economic assessment for the exploitation of coal to generate electricity and heat was made. A new procedure for the estimation of the energy efficiency of the coal gasification process, which is also used to compare the energy analyses for different examples of coal exploitation, was proposed, as well as the technological schemes and plant operating mode in Velenje, and the use of produced synthetic coal gas (syngas). The proposed location for the pilot demonstration experiment in Velenje Coal Mine was reviewed and the viability of the underground coal gasification project in Velenje was determined.
Keywords: underground coal gasification, syngas, clean coal technology, energy analysis, economic analysis
