Abstract:

Researchers at the Energy Institute of Pennsylvania State University Penn State are conducting research on producing jet fuel by coprocessing coal or coal-derived products with low-value liquid intermediates produced during petroleum refining. To date, most of this research effort has focused on a coal-tar blending process. Penn State currently plans to build a one-barrel per- day pilot plant and produce 100 barrels of product to be delivered to and tested by the Air Force Research Laboratory. Recognizing the limited availability of the coal-tar derived liquids used in the coal-tar blending process, the Penn State research team has recently shifted its attention to a co-coking process, in which a mixture of solid coal and a refinery intermediate, decant oil, is used to produce a combination of liquid fuels and coke.
