Abstract

This chapter deals with the behavior of coal in a plasma medium. Pyrolysis behavior is discussed, and the reactions of coal with activated species (hydrogen) and acetylene formation are described. There then follows a discussion of the overall use of plasma technology in the coal industry. The behavior of the C–H–Ar–O system is described, followed by a discussion of the thermodynamic aspects of plasma operations. Experimental aspects are dealt with before returning to pyrolysis and the factors affecting that process in a plasma. The properties of pyrolysis residues are then covered, followed by a discussion of reactor dynamics and the application of various models to plasma conversion reactions and processes. Finally, coal coking behavior in an arc plasma is discussed.
