Scientists and engineers specializing in coal, some in academia but most with energy companies, survey the production and use of coal around the world. One chapter covers all the established markets, then chapters focus in turn on Brazil, the Russian Federation, India, Indonesia, and China. Other topics include the social and economic value of coal, forecasts and emerging technological and regulatory issues around the future of industrial coal utilization, coal use in iron and steel metallurgy, developments in pulverized fuel technology, coal gasification and conversion, and value-in-use (VIU) assessment for thermal and metallurgical coal.

Coal remains an important fossil fuel resource for many nations due to its large remaining resources, relatively low production and processing cost and potential high energy intensity. Certain issues surround its utilisation, however, including emissions of pollutants and growing concern about climate change. The coal handbook: Towards cleaner production Volume 2 explores global coal use in industry.

Part one is an introductory section which reviews the social and economic value of coal, emissions from coal utilisation, the handling, impact and utilisation of coal waste, and an exploration of emerging and future issues around industrial coal utilization. Chapters in part two highlight coal resources, production and use in established markets as well as the emerging markets of Brazil, the Russian Federation, India, Indonesia, and China. Part three focuses specifically on coal utilisation in industry. Chapters consider thermal coal utilisation, coal use in iron and steel metallurgy, advances in pulverised fuel technology, and the evaluation of coal for thermal and metallurgical applications. Further chapters explore coal utilisation in the cement and concrete industries, coal gasification and conversion, and value-in-use assessment for thermal and metallurgical coal. A final chapter summarises the anticipated future pathway towards sustainable, long-term coal use, suggesting transitions that will be needed to ensure cleaner utilisation for many decades to come.

With its distinguished editor and international team of expert contributors, The coal handbook Volumes 1 and 2 is a comprehensive and invaluable resource for professionals in the coal mining, preparation, and utilisation industry, those in the power sector, including plant operators and engineers, and researchers and academics interested in this field.
  • reviews the social and economic value of coal, emissions from coal utilisation, and the handling, impact and utilisation of coal waste

Coal is an important fossil fuel resource for many nations due to its large remaining reserves, relatively low processing cost and high energy intensity potential. Certain issues surround its utilization, however, including emissions of pollutants and growing concern about climate change. The two volumes of The coal handbook present a systematic and comprehensive review of coal production and utilization in industrial applications, from power plants to steel and iron making, with emphasis on cleaner production. After an introductory section exploring the social and economic value of coal and emissions from coal utilization, Volume 2 concentrates on global coal production and coal use in industry.
This volume draws upon the foundations provided in Volume one, including the social and economic value of coal and emissions from coal utilization, and then proceeds to cover all technological aspects of coal utilization including an insightful look into the BRIC countries where the immediate future of coal utilization is likely to continue to thrive for the next 20 years. Chapters cover coal use in power generation, iron and steelmaking, conversion in liquid fuels and chemicals, and approaches to cost-in-use and environmental impact assessments. The final chapter summarizes the anticipated future pathway towards sustainable, long-term coal use suggesting transitions that will be needed to ensure cleaner utilization for many decades to come.
