Lignite with a high organic sulfur content was desulfurized by pyrolysis performed at temperatures ranging from 650 to 950°C. An investigation was carried out on the effect of calcium-based sorbents such as lime, limestone, and dolomite on removing sulfur during pyrolysis in the presence of N2 and CO2 gases. Limestone and dolomite proved more effective than lime and more sulfur was removed in an atmosphere of CO2 than in an atmosphere of N2.

Article | 2007 | International Journal of Hydrogen Energy32 ( 18 ) , pp.5005 - 5014

Activated carbons were prepared by physical and chemical activations from coals collected from two mines (Kilimli and Armutcuk) in Zonguldak region, Turkey under different conditions. Ash content was reduced considerably by use of HCl and HF treatments. Pyrolytic thermal treatments in a temperature range of 600-900 {ring operator} C under N2 flow and chemical treatments using different chemical agents such as KOH, NH4Cl, ZnCl2 were applied to the coal samples from the two mines. N2 adsorption isotherms were obtained at 77.4 K for the thermally and the chemically treated samples and the data were used for the evaluation of the specif . . .ic surface area, total pore volumes and the average pore sizes of the samples. Higher surface area values were obtained from Kilimli coal samples than Armutcuk. The BET surface area of the Kilimli coal samples which were initially have a value of 1.20 m2/g were increased to 52.62 m2/g after pyrolytic heat treatments at 800 {ring operator} C and increased to a value of 830.5 m2/g by treating the coals with KOH + NH4 Cl mixture at 750 {ring operator} C followed by oxidation of the samples mixed with ZnCl2. The activated carbon samples were prepared for the purpose of their evaluation in hydrogen sorption studies. © 2007 International Association for Hydrogen Energy Daha fazlası Daha az

Article | 2011 | Materials and Manufacturing Processes26 ( 1 ) , pp.99 - 103

This study investigates the pyrolytic characteristics and kinetics of bituminous coal, vine-trimming waste, and blends of these in varying proportions. The pyrolysis of the bituminous coal and vine-trimming waste was performed at heating rates of 5°C/min, 20°C/min, and 80°C/min under a nitrogen flow rate of 50ml/min from ambient to 1000°C. Different blends containing 10%, 20%, 40%, and 50% vine-trimming waste were prepared and pyrolyzed at a heating rate of 20°C/min and a nitrogen flow rate of 50ml/min from room temperature up to 1000°C. The reaction degrees and kinetic parameters were calculated using the Coats and Redfern kinetic . . .model. The pyrolysis of bituminous coal and vine-trimming waste took place in two stages, and with increasing heating rate there was a decrease in the activation energies. In contrast, the pyrolysis of the blends occurred in two stages. The first stage involves decomposition of vine-trimming waste, and the second one that of bituminous coal. As the proportion of vine-trimming waste in the blend increased, there was a decrease in the activation energy in the first stage and an increase in the second stage. © Taylor & Francis Group, LLC Daha fazlası Daha az

Article | 2004 | Turkish Journal of Engineering and Environmental Sciences28 ( 4 ) , pp.233 - 239

Simultaneous thermogravimetry-differential thermal analysis (TG-DTA) was used to study the pyrolysis kinetics of Turkish bituminous coals. Thermogravimetry (TG) and derivative thermogravimetry (DTG) were employed to measure the weight changes and rates of weight loss, which were used for comparison of the thermal behaviour of several coals and calculation of their kinetic parameters. Coal samples were heated in TG-DTA apparatus in an inert atmosphere (100 ml min-1 nitrogen) at a temperature range of 25-1000 °C. The activation energy (Ea) and pre-exponential factor (A) were calculated from the experimental results by using an Arrheni . . .us-type kinetic model. The data indicate that the pyrolysis of coals is a 1-stage process. The decomposition stage (350-700 °C) has a best fit with first-order kinetics with Ea = 65-97 kJ mol-1 Daha fazlası Daha az

Alper K. | Tekin K. | Karagöz S.

Article | 2015 | Clean Technologies and Environmental Policy17 ( 1 ) , pp.211 - 223

The production of biofuel from biomass waste is of great interest to the scientific community regarding the discovery of solutions to global energy demand and global warming. The pyrolysis of biomass to produce bio-oil is an easy, cheap and promising technology. In the current investigation, the pyrolysis of two different biomasses (cornelian cherry stones and grape seeds) was achieved at temperatures ranging from 300 to 700 °C. The effect of pyrolysis temperatures on the yields of each product was significant. The bio-oil yields were maximized at 500 °C for cornelian cherry stones and 700 °C for grape seeds. The compositions of bio . . .-oils for both cornelian cherry stones and grape seeds were similar and contained mainly oxygenated hydrocarbons. The compounds observed in this investigation were composed of phenols, alkyl benzenes, alkanes, alkenes, fatty acids, fatty acid esters and a few nitrogen-containing compounds. Bio-char properties were amended in association with both the pyrolysis temperature and biomass type. Bio-chars from cornelian cherry stones contained higher carbon and lower oxygen levels than those from grape seeds under identical conditions. Increases in pyrolysis temperatures produced bio-chars containing higher carbon levels and heating values for both carnelian cherry stones and grape seeds. © 2014 Springer-Verlag Daha fazlası Daha az
