Contents:
1. Introduction -- 2. Global primary energy consumption -- 3. Coal : formation, classification, reserves and production -- 4. Natural gas : reserves, emissions and costs -- 5. Pollution from coal combustion -- 6. Coal treatment and emissions control technologies -- 7. Coal-based electricity generation -- 8. Advanced coal-power plant generation -- 9. Carbon capture and storage -- 10. Coal-to-liquid fuels -- 11. CCTs in developing countries -- 12. Outlook for clean coal technologies
Summary: "This book discusses clean coal technology (CCT), the latest generation of coal technology that controls pollutants and performs with improved generating efficiency. CCT involves processes that effectively control emissions and result in highly efficient combustion without significantly contributing to global warming. Basic principles, operational aspects, current status, on-going developments and future directions will be covered. The implementation of CCT in countries with large coal reserves and that utilize large quantities of coal for their energy supply is discussed. These countries are also the foremost CO2 emitters globally and their energy policies are crucial to international efforts to combat global warming. This work will be useful for students and professionals in the fields of fuel, mechanical, chemical and environmental engineering and Clean Tech"-- Provided by publisher
