Solid Fuels and Heavy Hydrocarbon Liquids: Thermal Characterisation and Analysis, 1st Edition
Author: Rafael Kandiyoti, Alan Herod and Keith Bartle
Publication year: 2006
Extent: Hardback, VST and PDF, 364 pages
The first strand involves a critical overview of the design of experimental methods used for examining the thermal behaviour of solid fuels [pyrolysis, liquefaction and gasification], while the second will emphasise chemical structures and molecular mass distributions of coal derived tars, extracts and pitches, petroleum-derived asphaltenes, and biomass derived heavy hydrocarbon liquids.
Two major, interdependent strands in the study of fossil and renewable fuel utilisation are focused on within this text:
(i) Thermal characterisation of solid fuels including various ranks of coals, biomass and waste, and, (ii) The analytical characterisation of heavy hydrocarbon liquids, covering coal, petroleum and biomass derived heavy fractions.
