The aim of this research was to make a study of the reaction of minerals to pyrolysis, and to make a study of cokes. During the pyrolysis, the volatility of sulphur and chlorine was to be studied, as well as the influence of minerals during the plastic phase. Using the cokes, the plan was to undertake a very accurate analysis of the minerals, and to study their relationship to the coke properties.

With a view to use the results in industry, we took the decision to focus our study on two main points:

- The behaviour of sulphur during pyrolysis and its influence on the pressure during the plastic phase;
- A study on mineralogy of coals and cokes.
