A brief summary of the work performed to date by the firm Sulzer Bros., in conjunction with the Thermo Electron Corporation on request by the US Department of Energy, to survey the potential of coal and coal-based fuels in large diesel engines, is given. The work, which has been going on for more than a year, shows promising results with SCR II de-ashed "liquid" coal, a solvent-refined dark red liquid with the consistency of paraffin. The production process for this fuel is outlined, and engine test results are reported.
