The effects of various gases e.g. coal gas, hydrogen, superheated steam and water gas on the desulphurization of Baragoiai (Assam) coal during carbonization have been studied. About 90% of the sulphur in Baragolai coal is organic. Two methods were generally adopted ; (i) the coal was carbonized at 925º±25ºC, and the reacting gas was then passed over the coke, (ii) the reacting gas was passed from the beginning of carbonization, the flow of gas being continued at 925º±25ºC. The second method was found to be more effective. The efficiency of desulphurization is higher in a vertical furnace than in a horizontal, probably of closer packing of the coal and coke.
