Synthetic Gasolines and Diesel Fuels from Processing of Shale Oils and Coal Liquids 861542
Seven test fuels were provided to research projects in the Department of Energy Alternative Fuels Utilization Program. Currrent refining technology was applied for conversion of shale- and coal-derived feedstocks to gasolines, diesel fuel, and turbine fuel. Hydrogenation was used in all four processing sequences, supplemented by catalytic reforming, distillation, and blending as needed to meet the product objectives. Major operating conditions are described for each process step. Laboratory analyses are provided for feedstocks, intermediates, and final products.
