Child Edward T: Production of methane-rich gas. Texaco Development Corporation, Whaley T H, Ries C G, Brent Albert, November 25, 1975: US3922148 (242 worldwide citation)

This is an improved continuous process for producing a clean methane-rich gas stream without the concomitant formation of particulate carbon which would ordinarily decrease the efficiency of the process and shorten the life of the catalyst. By-product superheated steam is simultaneously produced at ...

Lamb Charles Wendell: An integrated catalytic coal devolatilisation and steam gasification process.. Exxon Research Engineering Co, December 22, 1982: EP0067580-A1 (45 worldwide citation)

A methane-containing gas is produced from carbonaceous feed solids by contacting the solids with a mixture of gases containing carbon monoxide and hydrogen in a devolatilization zone at a relatively low temperature in the presence of a carbon-alkali metal catalyst. The mixture of gases with which th ...
