Title (EN) THERMAL COAL UPGRADING PROCESS
(FR) PROCESSUS DE VALORISATION THERMIQUE DU CHARBON
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A process for thermally upgrading coal in a vertical processor wherein the coal is gravity fed and a heated inert gas is introduced into the processor. The temperature of the gas, the size of the coal and the rate of movement of the coal are controlled to efficiently remove moisture from the coal and to not remove volatile organic compound.
(FR)L'invention concerne un processus de valorisation thermique du charbon dans un processeur vertical, le charbon étant amené par gravité, et un gaz inerte chauffé étant introduit dans le processeur. La température du gaz, la grosseur du charbon et la vitesse de déplacement du charbon sont contrôlées de façon à éliminer de manière efficace l'humidité du charbon et à ne pas retirer les composés volatiles organiques.
