The process of high-sulphuric brown coal oxidative desulphurization has been studied. The effect of grain size and oxidant linear rate on the process parameters has been determined. During the process the main part of pyritic sulphur is converted into hydrogen sulphide resulting in forming the gases with H2S high content which may be utilized or processed by the known methods
The desulphurization process of different coal types has been studied. The coal was treated by air-steam mixture in the fluidized-bed reactor under the conditions similar to isothermal ones. The influence of temperature and oxidant composition affecting the pyrite (which is the coal component) chemical conversion on the desulphurization efficiency has been investigated for coals with different metamorphism degree.
