The height of the conical section is greater by a factor of I-h than the diameter of the cylindrical section. In the fluidized bed, a uniform radial gas flow profile is generated in every horizontal cross-sectional plane, and average gas flow rate in the fluidized-bed region is constant or slightly increased along the longitudinal axis of the gasifier.

Mihashi. H. <‘I rrl., RII.EM from. 1995. 27 (Disposal and Recycling of Organic and Polymeric Construction Materials), 261-270. Describes a prolcct in which waste paper was recycled as a building material. Artificial lightweight aggregates were developed in which large amounts of fly ash from coal-fired electric power plants and wastepaper produced from office automation machines were used. Strength properties of ccmentitious composite materials containing the lightweight aggregates were poor. Possible improvements are discussed.
for high loss-of-ignition
Groppo, J. G. r/ ol.. /Min. tn~. (Litrleton. Co/o.), 1996, 48, (6). 51-53. A beneficiation process was developed to provide selective sepn. of unburned C from high Ions-of-ignition fly ash. Using froth flotation to achieve selective \epns. requires long residence times and high reagent costs; so a proprietary reagent system was developed to address these limitations. Ba%ed on results obtained from lah. and pilot-scale studies. a flowsheet design was developed to produce two distinct usable products from class F fly a\h: low LOI ash and a high-C product suitable for reburning or further upgrading.

Steam cracking method and plant 97100398 powder injection from a single collection point
4 Jul Lenglet, E. er al., PCT Int. Appl. WO 96 20,256 (Cl. kiOGY/ln), 1996, FR Appl. Y4115.746, 26 Dee lY94. (In French) This paper examines a steam cracking method and plant which uses erosive powder injection for at least partially decoking quenching exchangers without breaking the steam cracking cycle. The powders are preferably injected slightly upstream from the quenching exchangers and separated from the cracked gases in primary gas/solid separators, temporarily stored in temperature-controlled collecting tanks, and delivered to a common powder storage and/or processing module by pressure transfer using a relatively small flow of non-condensable gas. The method and plant may be used to collect solid fragments generated by the injection of chemical compound< used as catalysts for the steam gasification of coke.

97100399 Study on chemical structure of vacuum residue Illinois No.6 coal from NEDOL coal liquefaction process
Tanaka, T. cf al., S&tan Kf~~~ktr Ku& Happyo Rordmnsh~r. 1Y93, 30. I I X121. (In Japanese) In this study a vacuum residue of Illinois No. 6 coal (IL-53) from NEDOL coal liquefaction process was analysed by “(I‘-NMR, FTIR, and pyrolysis GC-MS. The results for these analyses strongly suggest that dealkylation. deoxygenation. and condensation of aromatic hydrocarbons took place during the NEDOL coal liquefaction process.

(In Chinese) In this study zalainor coal chars loaded with ferric nitrate (HIT X00 ) were gasified with CO: using a temperature-programmed reaction technique at several heating rates. Some special features were noticed in the catalytic gasification. The reactivity of coal chars was established and factors influencing the reactivity of char were discussed. An oxygen-transfer mechanism was used to explain the catalytic actions of Fe during gasification in COZ.

97/00403 Accounting for spatial variability in environmental gamma ray spectrometry
and fileds of view
Tyler, A. N. er (il.. Journal of Environmet~tal Rndroacttwty. lY96. 33, (3), 213-235. Spatial variahility is an important feature in many environmental studies, which influences comparison estimates of environmental radioactivity from soil samples and in-situ or airborne i-ray apectrometry. Comparisons between ground based and airborne gamma ray spectrometry are need hoth for interpretation and for calibration purposes. However. under normal environmental conditions such comparisons may be affected by the considerable differences in the spatial response of these measurement techniques. A sampling methodology is presented which enables soil sample derived estimates of environmental radioactivity to he effectively compared with in-situ and aerial survey results. Examples of calibration sites and derived sensitivity estimates for “‘Cs are presented for a range of environmental contexts.

Application of the pyrochemical from LWR spent fuel
McPheeters, C. C. et al., Progrc.rs in NircIcar Encr&y, 1097, 31. (l/2), 17% 186. This paper examine? the recycling of actinides. ‘The integral fast reactor (IFR) process includes recycle of all of the actinides contained in spent IFR fuel, and thus reduces waste disposal challenges. Pyrochemical processes also appear suitable for recovering and recycling acttnides from spent fuels from light water cooled reactors (LWRs). Following surveys of many pyrochemical processes, two candidates have been selected for further development. A calcium/salt transport process operating at 800 to 85o’C appears to recover the transuranic (TRU) elements efficiently. The oxide
