Abstract:

In September 1986, the Fuels Branch of the Aero Propulsion Laboratory at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio commenced an investigation of the potential of production of jet fuel from the liquid by-product streams produced by the gasification of lignite at the Great Plains Gasification Plant in Buelah, North Dakota. Funding was provided to the Department of Energy DOE Pittsburgh Energy Technology Center PETC to administer the experimental portion of this effort. This report details the effort of JE Sinor Consultants, who, as a subcontractor to the DOE contract with the University of North Dakota Energy Research Center UNDERC, determined the market potential of these by-product streams. This report describes the market potential of the by-product streams for the production of phenols, benzene, cresote, cresylic acids, coal tar pitch, paving materials, carbon black, naphthalene, rubber processing oils, as well as, jet fuels.
