English Abstract

Since peat is an abundant, low cost natural resource, kerosening is an excellent way to give it added value. Indeed, a raw material containing about 5,000-5,500 BTU/lb (peat) is used and it is transformed into a flammable liquid containing about 18,000-19,000 BTU/lb (kerosene). In addition, given that peat and natural gas, the raw materials used, are low in cost, kerosening is very cost effective. For example, a mixture of about 265 lb of peat + about 175 lb of methane = about 1 barrel of synthetic kerosene with an approximate value of 690- 100/barrel. Kerosening produces good quality kerosene which can be used as liquid fuel, or after distillation, as liquid fuel compatible with most engines.

French Abstract

La tourbe étant une ressource naturelle abondante et de peu de valeur, le kerosening est un excellent moyen de la valoriser. En effet, on utilise une matière première contenant environ 5,000-5,500 BTU/lb ( tourbe) et on la transforme en un liquide inflammable contenant environ 18,000-19,000 BTU/lb (kerosene). De plus, vu que les matières premières utilisées, tourbe et gaz naturel, ne coûtent pas chers, le kerosening est très rentable. Par exemple, un mélange d'environ 265 lb de tourbe + environ 175 lb de méthane = environ 1 baril de kerosene synthétique d'une valeur d'environ 690- 100/baril. Le kerosening produit un kerosene de bonne qualité qui peut être utilisé tel quel comme combustible liquide ou, après distillation, comme carburant liquide compatible à la plupart des moteurs.
