KINETICS OF LIGNITE DESULPHURISATION BY THIOBACILLUS FERROOXIDANS

CELIN ACHARYA, RABI N. KAR AND LALA B. SUKLA

Abstract

Shake flask as well as reactor studies were performed to demonstrate that a Thiobacillus ferrooxidans isolate, Tf-R, was capable of removing sulphur from lignitic coal. Kinetic analyses were performed assuming first order reaction. The first order kinetics allowed a comparison with literature data for other strains of Thiobacillus ferrooxidans.
