Function of Hydrogenated Solvent in the Coal Liquefaction System
Katsumi HIRANO, Masato KOUZU, Masatoshi KOBAYASHI
The influence of heavy distillate in the solvent for coal liquefaction was investigated with a 5L batch-autoclave.
The following conclusions are obtained.
(1) Heavy distillate in the solvent consumes much hydrogen and prevents hydrogen translation on asphaltene hydrogenating reaction. Consequently, it reduces oil yield in the coal liquefaction system.
(2) Donatable hydrogen in the heavy solvent equally promotes coal liquefaction reaction to that in the recycle solvent. Severe hydrotreatment of the heavy solvent increases its hydrogen donatability and oil yield in the coal liquefaction system.
