Abstract

Coal to liquids process is becoming industrially important for chemicals production and the cogeneration of electricity. The tail gas treatment and process syngas consumption lead to different polygeneration arrangements. In this paper, CTL process integrated with the utility system are simulated, and three configurations with different tail gas treatment are analyzed. The tail gas as fuel in the utility plant can satisfy process power and energy demands and create a surplus.
