Inorganic Geochemistry of Coal

Inorganic Geochemistry of Coal explains how, why, and when the elements occur in coal; how to determine the concentrations and modes of occurrence of elements in coal; what kind of and how to diminish adverse effects of toxic elements on the environment and human health; which elements in coal could be industrially utilized; and which elements and why and how to be used as indications for deciphering depositional environments and tectonic evolution. Coal use will remain at an all-time high for the next several decades. Therefore, there is a critical need for understanding the properties of this fuel to ensure its efficient use, encourage its economic by-product potential, and to help minimize its negative technological, environmental, and health impacts. Inorganic Geochemistry of Coal summarizes the recent scientifically sound results and interpretations. Features dozens of never-before published illustrations of critical features of the inorganic geochemistry of coal Covers both the theory and applications of the topic, including case studies to serve as real-world examples Includes a chapter on the health and environmental impacts of the mining, development and use of coal INDICE: 1.
