AbstractThe operation of the CANMET coal-heavy oil coprocessing unit results in the production of a vacuum residue which contains all the ash from the feed coal as well as the iron compounds formed from the catalyst precursor. Earlier work by the SNC and NRC (1,2) demonstrated that deashing of the lighter oils from the coprocessor was possible. The approach involved the use of chemicals and high intensity mixing to emulsify the oil and promote transfer of the ash forming solids from the oil into the aqueous phase.
