Can we turn coal waste into biofuel?

    Actually, yes. In 2005 the governor of Pennsylvania unveiled a program to convert coal waste into diesel fuel and home heating oil. According to an article in the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, “The process involves mixing gasified waste coal with oxygen and water, then heating it to 2,500 degrees Fahrenheit to produce a synthetic gas. The gas undergoes another chemical reaction to become paraffin wax, which is refined into diesel fuel.”
