Scientists at the Institute of Solid State Chemistry and Mechanochemistry and the Institute of Chemistry and Chemical Technology, Mongolian Academy of Sciences have developed a smokeless fuel on the basis of lignite.
As reported by
According to the scientist, the technology requires that the coal extracted volatile organic compounds, and the resulting char is converted into fuel briquettes.
"The work is in demand by small boilers that use coal"- Said Aseyev.
The materials of the Russian Academy of Sciences says that the technology worked on brown coal Baganurskogo and Tavan Tolgoyskogo deposits in Mongolia.
Thermal decomposition of coal begins explosive release of gas component at a relatively low temperature (180-210 degrees C and 470-500 degrees respectively for coal Baganurskogo and Tavan Tolgoyskogo deposits).
