Technology of Coal Direct Liquefaction for Production of Synthetic Hydrocarbon Mixture

by Rudy P. SysAdmin at howtofindthemoney
Innovative product description

The unit provides direct coal liquefaction to product synthetic hydrocarbon mixture – equivalent of crude oil – by treatment of 2-phase coal-water mixture by pulse high-voltage discharges in cavitating reactor. Distillation of synthetic oil allows to produce light fractions.

Competitive advantages

  • Drastically decrease of energy consumption (in comparison to Sasol process).
  • Reduction of equipment cost (by excluding of high temperature and pressure processes).
  • Excluding of catalytic reactions.
  • Production of commercial-grade diesel fuel.


This technical solution is actual for coal rich regions with low transport accessibility and expensive fuels delivery. Proposed mini-plants using described technology can be located near the coal production sites for providing of internal needs in diesel fuel and heating oil.

Current status and application examples

  • Experimental-industrial plant with productivity of 15 t/day is operated on developer’s site,
  • A coal direct liquefaction unit for production of fuel for boilers was manufactured Customer in Nampo, DPRK in 2017,
  • 2 orders for equipment for small plants in Novokuznetsk and Altay region were received.

Coal liquefaction is a process of converting coal into liquid hydrocarbons: liquid fuels and petrochemicals. This process is often known as "Coal to X" or "Carbon to X", where X can be many different hydrocarbon-based products. However, the most common process chain is "Coal to Liquid Fuels" (CTL).
