Abstract : The objective of this program was to assess the feasibility of producing advanced fuels from coal liquids. The coal liquids used in this program were produced from the Close Coupled Integrated Two Stage Liquifaction System (ISTL) plant at Wilsonville Alabama. The liquids were derived from subituminous coal, Wydodack upper seam. from Gillete Wyoming. The coal liquids were distilled into a 300-625 F fraction. Hydrogenation experiments were conducted on this distillate fraction using the Hydrogenation Reactor System (HRS) located at Wright-Patterson AFB, Ohio. SHell 424 nickel/molybdenum catalyst was used for heteroatom removal and aromatics saturation. The report details the analysis of these hydrogenated candidate fuels. Keywords: Aviation fuel, High energy, Coal liquids, Hydrogenation of Coal Liquids, Advanced fuels.
