In Sweden, a country without any substantial coal resources, there is an interest in using peat and biomass as raw materials for fuel conversion processes.1,2 The present investigation, which is sponsored by the National Swedish Board for Energy Source Development, was undertaken to obtain data for comparison of coal, peat and biomass in such direct liquefaction processes where the raw material is heated and liquefied in a slurrying vehicle.
