Abstract

Cupric chloride oxidation of Bolu-Goynuk lignite was studied using a four-level factorial design with four process variables: temperature, time. cupric chloride concentration and particle size of the lignite. The main aim was to remove the organic sulphur from the lignite. Maximum organic sulphur removal was achieved by the oxidation of lignite with a particle size of 0.3 mm at 150-degrees-C for 210 min using 50 g CuCl2 per 100 ml of solution.
