Desulfurization matching with coal poly-generation system based on dual gas resources
The coal poly-generation system for the production of alcohol and ether fuels as well as power is one of advanced coal utilization techniques. The team leaded by Professor Xie Kechang is carrying out the research on the poly-generation system to produce the syngas from the combination of gasified and pyrolyzed coal gas (dual gas resources) for the alcohol ether synthesis. Gas desulfurization is one of the key technologies for this system. The desulfurization matching with dual gas resources based poly-generation system for the production of alcohol and ether fuels as well as power is presented according to gas components, sulfur content, sulfur species and desulfurization accuracy in this technology. This matching desulfurization is classified into hot gas desulfurization, normal gas desulfurization, warm gas desulfurization and organic sulfur catalytic conversion. The preparation of H(2)S removal sorbents, organic sulfur hydrolysis catalyst and the evaluation of their activities involved in the system were investigated. The H2S removal efficiencies of the crude and fine desulfurization sorbents prepared for hot gas desulfurization are 90% and 99% at 500 degrees C in simulating coal gas, and their sulfur capacities are 21.85 wt.% and 24.91 wt.%, respectively. The organic sulfur catalyst shows the high hydrolysis activity, and the hydrolysis conversion of COS is more than that of CS(2) on the same catalyst. The research will provide necessary information for the matching desulfurization technology in the demonstration project on dual gas resources coal poly-generation system. (C) 2009 Elsevier Ltd.
