This new fuel works just as well as petroleum-based kerosene. Some space experts say it provides safe and efficient power to China’s fuel-intensive aerospace industry.
Typically, rocket engines require high-grade fuel, and traditional rocket kerosene fuel can only be refined from high-quality petroleum through a complex extraction process. While China has limited oil reserves and oil field quality is not high.
The first launch of a rocket powered by coal-based kerosene fuel is considered a landmark achievement in the aerospace industry.
After years of research, the team discovered that aviation kerosene fuel produced by the liquefaction of coal has similar properties to those made from petroleum. This discovery offers an aerospace energy solution because China has abundant coal resources and the technology to convert coal to liquid is gradually improving.
