    A review on coal-to-liquid fuels and its coal consumption Mikael Ho¨o¨k,y and Kjell Aleklett Department of Physics and Astronomy, Uppsala University, .   With the fuel unable to compete in most places with natural gas, nuclear, and renewables, the mining and burning of coal is increasingly toxic economically as well as environmentally. Coal mines are becoming “stranded assets” — unlikely ever to pay off the costs of their development. The risks for financiers are becoming too great.

    Coal is currently a major source of fuel for power generation, industrial heat, and, on a smaller scale, manufacture of coke and by-product coal tar. In the mid to long-term, anticipated increases in the cost of natural gas and petroleum relative to coal are expected to increase the incentive for expanded efforts to convert coal to ash-free. This study analyzes the performance and economics of power generation systems based on Solid Oxide Fuel Cell (SOFC) technology and fueled by gasified coal. System concepts that integrate a coal gasifier with a SOFC, a gas turbine, and a steam turbine were developed and analyzed for plant sizes in excess of MW.

    During the past 10 years, the share of natural gas consumption in the U.S. has risen largely at the expense of coal: In , coal and natural gas consumption each represented close to 22 percent of primary U.S. energy consumption. By , coal consumption had declined to 15 percent, while natural gas increased to 29 percent. Additional Physical Format: Online version: Stratton, A. Methanol production from natural gas or coal.

Economics of fuel gas from coal: An analysis of the technical and economic factors which control the commercial feasibility in the United States of manufacturing from coal, by Battelle Memorial Institute Unknown Binding – January 1, Author: Battelle Memorial Institute.

This book treats coal and coalbed gas as mutually inclusive commodities in terms of their interrelated origin, accumulation, composition, distribution, generation, and development, providing a balanced understanding of this energy mix.

Oils and Gases from Coal reviews the state-of-the-art in oil and gases from coal in Europe and North America based on the work of the Symposium on the Gasification and Liquefaction of Coal. The said symposium is held under the auspices of the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe at Katowice, Poland on April Chapters highlight advances in coal mining technology, underground coal gas extraction, coal sizing, comminution and cleaning, and solid-liquid separation technologies for coal.

Further chapters focus on economic factors affecting coal preparation, post-treatment of coal, coal tailings treatment, and the optimisation, simulation and control of coal preparation plants. Abstract. Coal as a fossil fuel has long been used for a variety of industrial and domestic purposes.

The worldwide distribution and widespread availability of coal resources have been a major contributor to the economic growth of many countries, either directly through their own resources or indirectly through access to the international coal trade.

If the fuel cost of a natural gas CCGT plant stays far enough below the fuel cost of a steam coal plant, then the CCGT plants will be dispatched more often than coal. The economics of central station generation is largely a matter of costing.

As with any other production technology, central station generation entails fixed and variable costs. The fixed costs are relatively straightforward, but the variable cost of power generation is remarkably complex.

• Gas trade expanded by 63 bcm, or %, with growth in LNG outpacing growth in pipeline trade. • The increase in gas exports was driven largely by Australian and US LNG (up by 17 and 13 bcm respectively), and Russian pipeline exports (15 bcm). Coal • Coal consumption increased by 25 million tonnes of oil equivalent.

Coal and Coalbed Gas: Fueling the Future is one of the only books to address combined coal and coalbed gas, its environmental impacts, and its role in our future energy. This book sets the standard by bridging the gap in expertise between coal and coalbed gas, in which opportunities for cross-training have been cturer: Elsevier Science.

Pages Abstract The gasification of coal is the conversion of coal to produce combustible. Depending on the type of gasifier and the operating conditions, gasification can be used to produce a fuel gas that is suitable for several applications.

The upshot is that coal is facing a formidable group of competitors, and losing to them all, mostly due to sheer economics: Efficiency, solar, wind, and natural gas are all cheaper on the margin Author: Energy Innovation: Policy And Technology.

Coal prices were below $55 per tonne in May, as a collapse in energy consumption combined with falling crude oil and gas prices as well as warmer temperatures sent coal to multi-year lows. Coal was hit especially hard in April, after the outbreak brought much of India, a coal-based economy, to a standstill.
