Abstract

Coals most suited for conversion to liquids by pyrolysis and, especially, by hydrogenation have a high content of vitrinite and range in rank from soft brown coal to high volatile bituminous coal. Of the 15 major occurrences in Australia which could be considered for conversion, the following three stand out because of their properties and availability: (1) coals of the Walloon Coal Measures in the Surat basin of southern Queensland; (2) coals of the Singleton Coal Measures in the Sydney basin, New South Wales; and (3) brown coals of the Latrobe Valley in Victoria.
