ENERGY SOURCES PART A-RECOVERY UTILIZATION AND ENVIRONMENTAL EFFECTS, vol.38, no.22, pp.3324-3331, 2016 (SCI-Expanded) identifier identifier


Coal as an energy source is vital for developing industries. Chemical analysis of coal becomes necessary to identify its properties and to minimize its negative environmental effects because these countries are obligated to use an environmentally friendly coal. This paper aims to supply information for a more universal coal evaluation and this information will surely support research on new coal technologies and help to solve the environmental problems yielded by coal consumption. Information in the current study is useful for an engineer to know and understand before attempting selection and design of an industrial process that use coal.
