Abstract
Gasification of solid fuels including lignite, high volatile a bituminous coal, oil shale, kerogen, gilsonite, and tar sands in a microwave discharge in argon yields hydrogen, carbon monoxide, and gaseous hydrocarbons. The extent of gasification appears to be related to the carbon content of the solid. High initial rate of production of various components of gases decrease rapidly with time in the early stages of reaction. In a carbon dioxide discharge, the product species present are oxidized to yield carbon monoxide; in a hydrogen discharge, the formation of hydrocarbons is enhanced.
