Chlorinated organic residual liquid is produced from the distillation process of new refrigerants production. It is difficult to be treated by traditional water treatment process and incineration process. In this study, a carbonization process at atmospheric pressure was used to convert this residual liquid to carbonaceous product and organic gas in 2 h at 230˚C or 260˚C. The carbonaceous product was characterized by scanning electron microscope, Fourier-transform infrared spectrometer and

The element composition and the high heat value of these products were similar to anthracite and lignite, respectively, showing that they could be used as alternative fuels. The components of organic gas were analyzed using gas chromatography-mass spectrometry and the gas had potential for incineration.
