With fuel supplies changing and directives of policy being formulated, the use of coal for the industrial plant is of major concern for many owners. This paper discusses many of the questions which are asked on this subject for retrofitting existing plants and for designs of new coal-fired plants. One particular area for discussion is coal gasification for existing plants with package boilers. Estimated capital and operating costs are reviewed for various size ranges applicable to the industrial power plant.
