Following a previous report on Coal combustion modelling, this short report covers the recent development in coal gasification modelling and simulation, which is a relatively new field. Mathematical modelling is increasingly being used to understand the underlying processes during coal combustion and gasification. It is also often used as a tool for predicting pollutant emission, ash deposition, etc. This report covers applications of modelling in various gasifier types such as entrained flow, fluidised bed and moving bed gasifiers as well as in processes such as integrated gasification combined cycle (IGCC). Modelling of variants of fluidised bed gasifiers such as the air blown gasification cycle (ABGC) and entrained flow gasifiers such as the advanced rapid coal hydrogasification (ARCH) are also described.
