Clean Coal Technologies (1 PDH)
Roughly twenty-five percent of the world's energy and forty percent of current carbon emissions come from coal. Because of it's abundant reserves and low cost, coal, and coal products, will continue to play an important role in fulfilling our energy needs. This paper will explain the thermochemical decomposition process known as pyrolysis and how it can be used to provide a deeper understanding of coal's intrinsic properties. All with an eye toward increasing the energy efficiency of the coal conversion process.
