Abstract
MANY PROCESSES TO CONVERT COAL TO OTHER FUELS REQUIRE LARGE QUANTITIES OF STEAM WHICH COMES INTO DIRECT CONTACT WITH THECOAL. MUCH OF THE STEAM IS CONDENSED AND REJECTED FROM THE PROCESS AS DIRTY WATER. SINCE THERE IS NO PARTICULAR NEED FOR THE STEAM TO BE PURE, IT WOULD BE ADVANTAGEOUS IF THE DIRTY WASTEWATER COULD BE RECONVERTED TO DIRTY STEAM WITHOUTTHE COST OF PURIFYING THE WASTEWATER. WATER GENERAL CORPORATION IS PROPOSING AN INVESTIGATION TO DETERMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF ECONOMICALLY GENERATING AND USING DIRTY STEAMDIRECTLY FROM WASTEWATER, EMPLOYING ONE OR BOTH OF TWO PROPRIETARY METHODS CONCEIVED FOR THIS PURPOSE.
