Apart from coal conversion rate, the tar yield, quality and radical concentration in char were also measured Heating rate to explore the diﬀerence between lignite briquette and the respective pulverised powder. Additionally, a 1-D Radicals model coupled with the chemical percolation devolatilisation (CPD) code was developed to quantitatively un- derstand heat transfer using temperature dependent parameters; product distribution and yields, and the pyr- olysis mechanism. It was discovered that heat transfer was the limiting factor for pyrolysis of the lignite
