NEW DIRECTIONS OF CHEMICAL PROCESSING OF KANSK-ACHINSK BASIN COAL

NOVYE NAPRAVLENIYA KHIMICHESKOI PERERABOTKI UGLEI KANSKO- ACHINSKOGO BASSEINA

Conditions for open-pit mining in Kansk-Achinsk Basin in East Siberia are very favorable. It is possible to mine about 1 million of coal per annum by this method. The seams are up to 50-70 m thick. At present 90% of coal mined here is used locally in Krasnoyarsk and Irkutsk regions. Its transportation is economically feasible only at distances well below 2000 km. The distances to the European part of the USSR where energy is required are 4,000-5,000 km, however. Therefore, several possibilities of chemical processing of Kansk-Achinsk coal for long-distance transportation are considered. One is the production of "thermocoal" by high-speed heating of coal to the temperature of 400-550 C in a three-stage system of vertical chambers. Another is hydrogenation together with petroleum fraction with the b.p. above 260 C. Railroad and pipeline transportation of coal products are considered.
