Effects of limestone calcination on the gasification processes in a BFB coal gasifier

By Lindsay-Marie Armstrong, Sai Gu and Kai H. Luo


An Eulerian-Eulerian computational fluid dynamics (CFD) model of the gasification processes in a coal bubbling fluidised bed (BFB) is presented incorporating the devolatilisation, heterogeneous, homogeneous reactions and limestone calcination. The model considers separate phases for the coal, limestone and char and is carried out for different experimental conditions taken from the literature.<br/>The results of the exiting gas compositions have been averaged over time and validated with experimental data. The hydrodynamic behaviour as well as temperature and reaction distributions within the bed are presented. The impact of limestone calcination on the gaseous composition is observe
