The fuel of the future - Coal?



Coal, that ‘black dirty fuel of the past’, is potentially set to become a fuel of the future. Surprisingly though, not as we all recognise it. A major international oil company has teamed up with a major Chinese coal mining company to research the possibility of converting coal in to a liquid fuel. A "Coal-to-Liquid" pilot plant is currently being constructed in a remote region of China to study the feasibility of the process.

When in production, the plant will be able to produce approximately 3 million tonnes per year or 70,000 barrels per day of the new liquid fuel.

Safety Systems UK Ltd was chosen to supply both Birkett safety relief valves and Marston bursting discs to protect the plant from excessive pressure.
