Coal Fines Drying - Vulcan® Drying Systems

Created during the crushing and drying phases of coal mining, coal fines (particles smaller than 6mm) present disposal issues, as well as pose a health hazard to personnel and a contamination risk to the site. However, if processed correctly, coal fines can be converted into a fuel source, making them a valuable commodity.

Heavy metals and coal - Global Energy Monitor

Coal Ash. Burning coal produces airborne compounds, known as fly ash and bottom ash (collectively referred to as coal ash), which can contain large quantities of heavy metals that settle or wash out of the atmosphere into oceans, streams, and land. The amount of fly ash is going up: in 2006, coal plants in the United States produced almost 72 million tons, up 50 percent since 1993.

Coal - Wikipedia

Coal is a combustible black or brownish-black sedimentary rock, formed as rock strata called coal seams.Coal is mostly carbon with variable amounts of other elements; chiefly hydrogen, sulfur, oxygen, and nitrogen. Coal is formed when dead plant matter decays into peat and is converted into coal by the heat and pressure of deep burial over millions of years.
