Fuel Processing Technology covers the scientific and technological aspects of processing fuels and related wastes to other fuels, chemicals, and by-products as well as the analysis and characterization of process products. Processing is considered in the sense of chemical conversion, such as, hydrogenation, gasification, pyrolysis, bioconversion, and upgrading, as well as physical processing by beneficiation, cleaning and removal of inorganic matter. Coal, petroleum, natural gas, oil shale, tar sands, and organic wastes are emphasized.

All technological aspects of processing are included, such as, optimization, catalysis, feeding, product separation and evaluation, catalyst recovery, economics, pollution control, etc., concerned with liquefaction, gasification, combustion, solvent extraction (or solvent refining) and the coprocessing of coal/oil and coal/wastes, along with upgrading of conversion products such as O, N, or S removal.

Contributions are welcome on the chemistry and science of fuels and their products as these relate to the processing of fuels, products of processing, or experience in bench scale, process development units, pilot plants, or commercial processes.
