Methanol from coal - An adaption from the past - NASA/ADS

Nov 01, 1979  The production of methanol from coal using existing commercially available processing is examined for the example of a self-contained plant importing only coal, water and a small amount of power and located adjacent to a Wyoming mine site. Coal from the mine is crushed and dried to 8% moisture, then sent to a fluidized bed gasifier which produces H2, CO, CO2, methane and inert ...

Coal-To-Methanol Plant Coal to Methanol from Coal ...

Our standalone design for a methanol plant capable of producing 7,000 BPD would require the gasification of approximately 1,100 tonnes per day of high grade coal. The best practice would be to develop and build the plant at an operating coal mine. A plant of this size would have an estimated capital cost of approximately US$275 million.

EIA - Greenhouse Gas Emissions - Methane Emissions

Mar 31, 2011  Natural gas systems and coal mines are the major sources of methane emissions in the energy sector (Figure 18 and Table 18). U.S. methane emissions from natural gas systems grew from 1990 to 2009 by 27 percent (39 MMTCO 2 e), largely because of increases in natural gas consumption. Emissions from coal mines declined from 1990 to 2002 and ...
