Dalmat Engineering Projects, established in
2001 and based in Alrode, Johannesburg, South Africa provides
cost-effective technologies for:
production of char (devolatised coal) from
extraction of oils (kerogen) from oil shales
The Dalmat pyrolisation technologies process bituminous coals
to produce either char coke or retort coke which can be used as
a carbon reductant and blended with or substitute metallurgical
The same pyrolisation technology can be equipped to capture the
condensable liquids from the evolved volatile gasses from the
process, therefore it is also suited to capture oils/tars from
oil shales (torbanite) which can be marketed in the petroleum
The Dalmat technologies can be utilised in the following areas:
Ferro-Chrome, Ferro-Silicon and
other Smelting Operations
To become self-sufficient and independent in carbon reductant
To coal mines with suitable bituminous coal stock in order to
maximize adding value for the complete range of the ‘Run
of Mine” (ROM) coal production.
Existing Coke Producing Industries
To increase production capacity with low capital investment,
low operating costs, low maintenance and environmentally friendly
plants, and to widen the carbon products spectrum.
Iron and Steel Making Industries
To blend retort coke with metallurgical coke in blast furnaces
to reduce furnace carbon reductant charge cost.
Coal Mine with Oil Shale (Torbanite)
To process un-used oil shale (torbanite) material rejected from
coal mining operations for crude tar / kerogen and oil collection
which could be marketed to petroleum industries.
