Coal - Wikipedia

Coal is a combustible black or brownish-black sedimentary rock usually occurring in rock strata in layers or veins called coal beds or coal seams.The harder forms, such as anthracite coal, can be regarded as metamorphic rock because of later exposure to elevated temperature and pressure.

Coal | Facts, Uses, & Types | Britannica.com

Coal: Coal, one of the most important primary fossil fuels, a solid carbon-rich material, usually brown or black, that most often occurs in stratified sedimentary deposits, which may later be subjected to high temperatures and pressures during mountain building, resulting in the development of anthracite and even graphite.

Carbon Dioxide Emission Factors for Coal

Distributions of the data observations by year of collection and degree of cleaning were compiled (Table FE2). Because the dates of the samples range from 1900 through 1986, it was thought that changes in laboratory analysis techniques over the years might have influenced the resultant carbon-to-heat-content ratios.

Coal pollution mitigation - Wikipedia

Coal pollution mitigation, often referred to by the term clean coal, is a series of systems and technologies that seek to mitigate the pollution and other environmental effects normally associated with the burning (though not the mining or processing) of coal, which is widely regarded as the dirtiest of the common fuels for industrial processes and power generation.

Natural gas is a fossil fuel, though the global warming emissions from its combustion are much lower than those from coal or oil. Natural gas emits 50 to 60 percent less carbon dioxide (CO2) when combusted in a new, efficient natural gas power plant compared with emissions from a typical new coal ...

Burning Coal and the Permo-Triassic extinction

Roger, thank you for debunking the burning coal idea. I am sure that you know that it was based on the fallacious belief in academic circles that CO2 is the fount of all evil, causing global warming and ocean acidification, often at the same time.

How Do Diamonds Form? | They Don't Form From Coal!

Many people believe that diamonds are formed from the metamorphism of coal. That idea continues to be the "how diamonds form" story in many science classrooms. Coal has rarely played a role in the formation of diamonds. In fact, most diamonds that have been dated are much older than Earth's first ...
