Extensive thermodynamic and preliminary experimental studies have identified the potential use of aluminosilicate materials to simultaneously remove volatile alkali and particulate released during pressurized gasification of coal. The gettering capacity of three selected materials have been evaluated in a bench-scale reactor operating at 1114 kPa total pressure and 1123–1173K in alkali-laden inert, and simulated fuel gas environments. At 1123 K, alkali gettering has been established to result through reaction within the amorphous acid-insoluble alumino-silicate fraction of these materials, while at 1173 K saturation of the insoluble matrix is achieved, with gettering occurring mainly through acid-soluble complexes. The gettering mechanism as either a chemical reaction or a physical adsorption phenomenon and reaction kinetics will be delineated through future thermogravimetric (TG) analyses.
