        Reviews properties of semicokes from coal and brown coal, and gives the results of gasification trials.  Good yields of producer gas of net calorific value 1,300-1,400 kcal./m.3 were obtained, the brown coal product being rather more reactive than coke from coal.  Brown coal semicoke also can be used via water gas as a source of H2 for hydrogenation purposes or of Fischer-Tropsch synthesis gas.
