Oils and Gases from Coal reviews the state-of-the-art in oil and gases from coal in Europe and North America based on the work of the Symposium on the Gasification and Liquefaction of Coal. The said symposium is held under the auspices of the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe at Katowice, Poland on April 23-27, 1979. Separating 23 papers as chapters, this book begins with the opening lecture on the efficiency of coal gasification and liquefaction processes. Other papers focus on the assessment of world resources of coal and prospects for the production of different types of coal; comparative end-use efficiency of the use of coal; theoretical bases of coal gasification; underground coal gasification; and use of coal products for non-energy purposes. The utilization or disposal of coal processing residues; development of processes of semi-coking and gasification of oil shales; further development of Fischer-Tropsch synthesis; application of fluidization in coal gasification; and evaluation of the trade-offs from regional coal development and environmental strategies are also explained.
