Title: Calibrated dilatometer exercise to probe thermoplastic properties of coal in pressurized CO 2

Abstract

This research was aimed at testing a hypothesis, that at elevated CO 2 pressure coal can soften at temperatures well below those obtained in the presence of other gases. That could have serious negative implications for injection of CO 2 into deep coal seams. Here, we have examined the experimental design issues and procedures used in the previously published studies, and experimentally investigated the physical behavior of a similar coal in the presence of CO 2 as a function of pressure and temperature, using the same high-pressure micro-dilatometer refurbished and carefully calibrated for this purpose. No notable reduction in coal softening temperature was observed in this study.
