  • The mechanism of the oxidation of coal at low temperatures, i.e., below 100°C, was examined using measurements of the gases emitted from a bed of coal in an isothermal flow reactor. Employing an online two-column micro gas chromatograph, transient rates of production of CO2 and CO were monitored during desorption and oxidation experiments. A bituminous coal was milled into three nominal top size classes: 0-0.5 mm, 0-1 mm, and 0-2 mm. Desorption experiments with unoxidized coal samples at 20-70… CONTINUE READING
