I. Introduction: The Boudouard Process for Clean Carbon Fuel

The Boudouard Reaction1 was discovered in 1905 by French chemist Octave Leopold Boudouard.
The Boudouard Reaction is used to gasify coal3,4 with carbon dioxide in order to obtain carbon monoxide.
The purpose of this discussion is to show capture of carbon dioxide from various sources, its transport by pipeline to a central location where various grades of coal are available and the use of the Boudouard Reaction in order to produce clean carbon fuel from coal which contains sulfur.

II. Summary

The Boudouard Process is used to make a clean carbon fuel in the form of a carbon slurry in naphtha.

III. The Boudouard Process for clean carbon fuel

The Boudouard Process for clean carbon fuel is the basis for the process shown in Fig. 1. An ideal application for the process is to make a clean carbon fuel from coal containing sulfur.

The Boudouard Process for Clean Carbon Fuel is described below. An ideal application for the process is to make a clean carbon fuel from coal containing sulfur as described in Fig.2.

  1. Reaction 1 is the standard Boudouard Reaction described by Eric H. Reichl2 in US Patent 4,762,528. Catalyst and temperature are from an article3 by Kenzo Nagase.
  2. Reaction 2 is the reverse Boudouard Reaction shown in the Reichl patent.
  3. The various grades of coal4 re peat, lignite, sub-bituminous coal. bituminous coal and anthracite all of which may be used in this process.
  4. The coal mining site would be the production site for the Boudouard Process for clean carbon fuel. The carbon dioxide would be obtained by amine gas treating5 at sources such as power plants, fermentation plants, limestone calcinations, etc. and shipped to the production site by pipeline. In fact, the pipeline easement from the power plant can be used for shipment of the carbon naphtha slurry which is pumpable.
  5. The naphtha is obtained by destructive distillation6 of coal tar.

IV. Conclusions:

The Boudouard Process for Clean Carbon Fuel uses imported carbon dioxide to create clean carbon from coal containing sulfur and the carbon is slurried in naphtha a coal tar derivative.

V. Recommendations:

Import carbon dioxide by pipeline to a coal mining site in order to create a clean carbon fuel.
