An important economic factor in all hydrogenation processes is the hydrogen cost. To reduce this cost will be beneficial for the economy of the processes. The goal of this research is to study the possibility of using coke-oven gas as reactive gas for coal pyrolysis. Coke-oven gas contains approximately 55% H(2), 30% CH(4) (the balance being made by CO(2), CO, C(n)H(m), N(2)) so that the pyrolysis may be called hydromethanolysis. The second aspect of the research concerns the catalytic hydrogenation of the heavy oil fractions using coke-oven gas instead of pure hydrogen.
