Co-coking is the simultaneous coking of a bituminous coal and petroleum product, such as decant oil. Extensive work at the Energy Institute has shown that the inclusion of coal-derived components brings more pyrolytic stability to the distillates. For the future characterization, saturates, aromatics, resins, asphaltenes analysis will be performed to determine the contribution of the coal to the final liquid yield with respect to reaction time in co-coking. A blank of decant oil (100%) at 6 hr was ran to compare the contribution of the coal to the final liquid yield. As reaction time increased, liquids present in the coke decreased, indicating that the contribution to the liquid yield from the coke was higher as reaction time increased. The liquid obtained by the delayed coking process at laboratory scale contained coal-derived liquids, which provide cyclic and aromatics improving the stability of the jet fuel.
