Abstract

This invention uses black water generated by the quenching of syngas in a gasification reactor as a temperature moderator in the gasification reactor. The black water is pumped up to the gasifier feed pressure and filtered to remove any particles that could damage the feed injector to the gasifier. The black water is then heated with steam, and mixed with the solid carbonaceous fuel prior to the fuel being introduced into the gasification reactor.
