The purpose of this study is to investigate the effect of inorganic solid additives (Na2CO3, K2CO3, CaCO3, MgCO3, Fe2O3 and CaSO4), on flash pyrolysis of high volatile bituminous coal samples from Makerwal coalfields by using open tubular type pyrolyzer coupled with gas chromatography. Two different coal samples were selected for this purpose. The sampling apparatus consisted of two traps in order to separate the products into fractions on the basis of their volatility such as tar, liquid, and gaseous fractions. The product yields released from each sample in their raw, de-mineralized and salt treated form were monitored. The gaseous fractions were directly introduced to GC for identification. The gases were C1-C5 hydrocarbons. The pyrolysis was carried out at 690°C. Some evaluations and comparisons, from the results obtained, are presented.
