Abstract The Texaco Gasification Process has a long history of successful commercial operations making gas for use in chemical synthesis or as a clean fuel. The process can meet the most stringent environmental regulations when gasifying carbonaceous materials ranging from natural gas to coal and coal by-products. It is the leading second generation coal gasification process, and one plant, the Cool Water Plant in Daggett, California, was called the "world's cleanest coal plant." Recently, the use of the Texaco Gasification Process has been extended to the destruction by gasification of a wide range of wastes. Commercially, a number of wastes and by-products from petroleum refining and chemical production are being gasified today. At the pilot plant scale, sewage sludge and oil field production wastes have been gasified in tests to obtain design and environmental permitting data for the proposed commercial operation of the Cool Water Plant. In this paper, the results of pilot plant testing of the gasification of sewage sludge are presented, and the potential uses of the Texaco Gasification Process in waste destruction are described.
