Accelergy secures license to Exxon’s coal liquefaction tech

Abstract:
With Exxon's microcatalytic direct coal liquefaction technology (MCL), Vail said "it means you use a nanocatalyst and blend it with the coal under certain heat and pressure, and you create a high grade distillate product that can be upgraded to diesel or jet fuel."
