The paper presents a review of relevant literature on coal pyrolysis.
Pyrolysis, as a process technology, has received considerable attention from many researchers because it is an important intermediate stage in coal conversion.
Reactions parameters as the temperature, pressure, coal particle size, heating rate, soak time, type of reactor, etc. determine the total carbon conversion and the transport of volatiles and thereby
the product distribution. Part of the possible environmental pollutants could be removed by optimising the pyrolysis conditions. Therefore, this process will be subsequently interesting for coal utilization in the future.
