Abstract: The Mechanical Thermal Expression (MTE) process is an efficient means of removing water from low-rank coal, however the effect of dewatering on the combustion properties of lignite is largely unknown. This work examines the burnout performance of both dewatered lignite and untreated lignite in a drop tube furnace. The results show that combustion of the MTE-processed lignite is approximately 20% slower under conditions relevant to pulverised-fuel flames. This is apparently due to the reduction in pore volume which occurs during coal dewatering by the MTE process.
