Title: High-sulfur coal research at the SIUC Coal Technology Laboratory

Abstract

Research on high-sulfur coal through the Coal Technology Laboratory program at Southern Illinois University at Carbondale (SIUC) is divided into three general categories: coal science, coal preparation, and coal utilization. On study is currently underway in coal science on the reactivity of whole coals, selected pure maceral fractions, and cleaned coal products. In the coal preparation category, three projects are currently underway: a mechanistic study of the removal of chlorine from coal; electro-osmotically enhanced dewatering/deliquoring of fine-particle coal;and comminution employing liquid nitrogen pretreatments. The coal utilization category has two projects in progress: an investigation small-user applications of fine-particle coal, a modeling technique which divides the pulse combustor into different cells has resulted in a stable computational procedure; and corona-enchanced absorption of SO{sub 2}/NO{sub x}, modeling of flue gas plasma in a dielectric-barrier discharge with uv-irradiation. Simulations were carried out using the model.
