How can we make coal more environmentally friendly?
One method is carbon capture, which separates CO2 from emissions sources and recovers it in a concentrated stream.
The CO2 can then be injected underground for permanent storage, or sequestration.
Reuse and recycling can also reduce the environmental effects of coal production and use

Coal cleaning by ‘washing’ has been standard practice in developed countries for some time. It reduces emissions of ash and sulfur dioxide when the coal is burned. Electrostatic precipitators and fabric filters can remove 99% of the fly ash from the flue gases – these technologies are in widespread use.

What are uses of coal?
Uses of coal
  • Electricity Generation. Power generation is the primary use for coal worldwide. …
  • Metal Production. Metallurgical (coking) coal is a key ingredient in steelmaking. …

Coal is primarily used as fuel to generate electric power.

In coal-fired power plants, bituminous coal, subbituminous coal, or lignite is burned.

The heat produced by the combustion of the coal is used to convert water into high-pressure steam,

which drives a turbine, which produces electricity.
