Abstract

This paper presents optical spectroscopic diagnostics in H Quest Vanguard's microwave-plasma technology applied to coal and material characterization results from its application to H2 generation from natural gas. Plasma diagnostics for process control will be illustrated. Chemical analyses are also presented of coal-to-liquid (CTL) products.
