Abstract: A 200-mm diameter, laboratory-scale atmospheric-pressure fluidised-bed reactor was designed and constructed by the Cooperative Research Centre (CRC) for Clean Power from Lignite. The purpose of this facility is to obt ain experimental data for the air/steam gasification of Australian lignite in order to validate the Centre’s mathematical model of a bubbling fluidised bed gasifier. An air-dried mixture of low-ash Victorian lignite has been used in air-steam and air-only gasification tests. The product syngas composition demonstrated successful gasification of coal with carbon monoxide and hydrogen concentrations each in the range 16-20 vol%. More carbon monoxide was measured in the syngas during coal gasification with air only. The gas composition of major species was observed to be relatively constant within the freeboard of the gasifier.
