Rate expressions are presented to describe the oxidation of coal in a fixed-bed reactor under mild conditions, i.e. conditions which are useful in pretreatment for gasification. A model for chemical control is developed based upon the concept of a triple-path coupled burn-off adsorption site. The model incorporates the effects of temperature, oxygen partial pressure, and coal surface area, and is the first to account for the product distribution of gaseous C02, CO, and H2O, as well as oxygen… Expand
