Coal Processing an overview ScienceDirect Topics

Describing and eliminating the health hazards of coal processing requires an understanding of the nature of the raw materials, products, by-products, the type of pollutants produced, the design of the plant and its operating methods (Wadden, 1976).The structure of coal was described in Chapter 6 and is thought to be a highly linked amorphous polymer consisting of aggregates connected by

What is the Environmental Impact of Coal?

2019-6-25  Coal has long been a reliable source of American energy, but it comes with tremendous costs because it is incredibly dirty. The same chemistry that enables coal to produce energy—the breaking down of carbon molecules—also produces a number of profoundly harmful environmental impacts and pollutants that harm public health.

In addition, extraction techniques, such as mountaintop removal, change the surrounding landscape. In this extraction process, seams of coal are removed from the mountainside by using explosives to remove the top of the mountain, making the coal below easier to access. The excess land and debris, that was once the top of the mountain, is generally pushed in...
