  • Non-energy products from coal
    Non-energy products from coal Dr Ian Reid Recorded: May 23 2018 38 mins
    In this webinar we will consider potential uses for coal beyond power generation and steel blast furnace furnaces. There are opportunities to use coal derived feed stocks in chemicals, minerals, agriculture, new materials and pollution control. With the electrification of energy use that is projected to double by 2040 this is raising demand for new materials and minerals that can be derived from coal to support renewable energy generation and the electrification of ground transport. The problems of desertification and fresh water supply are set to increase and coal products can be used to mitigate soil erosion, improve water quality, and also reduce emission from fossil fuel power plants.

    The recent discovery of new forms of carbon is leading to applications in energy storage, aerospace and composite materials. When considering new carbon-based materials a major issue is the source of carbon and whether it is suitable to use a coal feed stock, and what the effect of that is on the quality of the product and the manufacturing complexity. In addition to new applications for carbon there is an established coal to chemicals industry that provides a host of everyday products that is encountering new environmental challenges. The versatility of carbon means that this webinar will cover a broad range of topics exploring issues and opportunities for the non-energy uses of coal.

  • The use of coal-derived wastes as a source of energy
    The use of coal-derived wastes as a source of energy Dr Stephen Mills Recorded: Mar 21 2018 35 mins
    Inevitably, the production of coal creates various waste streams, some of which contain enough residual coal to give them potential as sources of energy. Some types may be used directly or alternatively, reprocessed to recover their coal content. They can form low cost fuels that reduce the demand for fresh coal. Furthermore, their use helps minimise the amounts stored in dumps or settling ponds, reducing their unwanted environmental impacts.
    This webinar will examine the types of wastes, the amounts generated, and their utilisation for the main coal-producing countries.

  • NOx control for high ash coal-fired plant
    NOx control for high ash coal-fired plant Maggie Wiatros- Motyka Recorded: Feb 21 2018 41 mins
    Many countries have strict emission limits for nitrogen oxides (NOx) and so NOx control systems are widely used on coal-fired power plants. India has recently introduced NOx emission limits so pollution control technologies will need to be installed. This webinar will review available NOx controls for coal-fired units in general. With examples of recent developments, systems that could be successfully applied in Indian power plants are identified. The challenges facing Indian utilities are also considered. The new Indian standards have created opportunities for equipment manufacturers, as well as a need for global technology leaders to modify their products to meet local market requirements, particularly high ash content coal.
