b) Coal Gasification Technology

  • M/s India Industrial Enterprises ‐ Engineering Division

The Engineering Division supplies coal based producer gas plants on turnkey basis. The gas so produced is used as cheaper alternative fuel in industrial processes. The manufacturing facility is located at Calcutta. This gas plant produces combustible mixture of nitrogen, carbon monoxide, and hydrogen, generated by passing air with steam over burning coke or coal in a furnace and the resultant gas mixture is used as fuel. The gas so produced is a substitute for furnace oil and there is a saving over 60% in the furnace oil requirement. The new technology adapted by the company in manufacturing these plants gives a clean and consistent quality producer gas of high calorific value from any grade of Indian coal with virtually no effluents either liquid or gaseous. The novel modification bought about by the company over the conventional designs has greatly improved the operational efficiency and quality to a great extent. The plant produces clean and consistent gas from ‘A’ grade to ‘F’ grade of Indian Coal, with higher thermal efficiency of 88‐92%. The process is eco‐friendly, continuous and easily controllable like in oil fired furnaces. The modified design of extended shaft technology adapted by the company ensures use of any type of coal, from the best grades of A & B to inferior grades of E & F with equal ease and efficiency. The result is that almost up to 80% of the volatile matter content of the coal gets converted into gas. The producer gas is a viable substitute for fuel oils especially furnace oil, basically of petro‐base, the cost effectiveness of the same cannot be undermined.  The producer gas is therefore, an able, viable and economical substitute for furnace oil where depending upon the grade of coal used in theplant, 40 to 100% furnace oil can be saved. Besides, there are many advantages of the gasifier plant manufactured by the company like optimization of the process, ease of operation, optimization of power consumption, purity of gas, virtually no effluents either liquid or gaseous and above all, auto enrichment of gas with inbuilt distillation of coal.

The company have already supplied and installed more than 100 units of gasifier plants.
