MARINE FUEL POTENTIAL OF COAL/OIL MIXTURES

The paper discusses the potential of coal-oil mixture fuels (COMs), normally taken to imply suspensions of 30-50% by weight of pulverized black coal in heavy petroleum oil, with or without stabilizing additives. The history of such mixtures, going back to 1879, is reviewed. COM technology, production facilities, COM stability, and the economics of land-based and marine applications are discussed.
