Effect of Perchloroethylene Desulfurization of Coal on Its Hydrocarbon Content and Calorific Value
In this paper, the effect of the process on the calorific value and hydrocarbon content of coal has been studied. The effect on its hydrocarbon content was determined by comparing the ultimate analyses of raw and extracted coals. The calorific values were computed using Dulong formula. The effect on its mineral matter content was also determined by comparing the proximate analyses of raw and extracted coals. In this paper, it has been established that the organic desulfurization process selectively removes only the organic sulfur in coal without affecting the inorganic sulfur or the mineral matter content in it.
