  • Underground Coal Gasification: Converting Unmineable Coal To Energy

    Currently, about 1.5 billion people –almost a quarter of the world’s population— are without electric power. The International Energy Agency estimates that world energy demand (for all forms of energy, including transportation fuels) will increase by 36 percent by 2035 and fossil fuels, such as coal, will continue to play a critical role in meeting this demand. What is ...

  • Analysis of the organic contaminants in the condensate produced in the in situ underground coal gasification process

    Addressing the environmental risks related to contamination of groundwater with the phenolics, benzene, toluene, ethyl benzene, xylene (BTEX) and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), which might be potentially released from the underground coal gasification (UCG) under adverse hydrogeological and/or operational conditions, is crucial in terms of wider implementation of the process. The aim ...

  • Inquiry into coal seam gas

    Poorly planned or managed coal seam gas (CSG) exploration or extraction activities pose considerable risks to both groundwater and surface water systems. Key water quality issues, from my own perspective, are listed below. Specific issues may be of greater or lesser significance for particular projects, but all of these issues should be thoroughly and transparently assessed for all proposed (or ...

  • Numerical studies on the effects of water presence in the coal matrix and coal shrinkage and swelling phenomena on CO2-enhanced coalbed methane recovery process

    Conventional coalbed methane (CBM) models are developed using dual-porosity, single-permeability domain characteristics, which ignore the effects of water presence in the coal matrix. Neglecting these effects typically over-predicts gas production. Another phenomenon often disregarded in most CBM models is the coal shrinkage and swelling effects, which cause changes in coal permeability. This ...

  • Thermochemical reactor design and thermal breakdown in middle-rank coals

    Experiments conducted at bench scale can throw new light on the operation of pilot and plant scale processes. In the coal gasification/combustion area, such experiments have ranged from determinations of coal reactivities for novel entrained-flow gasifiers, to investigating the fate of injectant coal during blast furnace operation. Meanwhile, the accurate mimicking of conditions within pilot and ...

  • Forecasting of commercial energy consumption in India using Artificial Neural Network

    The forecasting of energy consumption is essential for any country to study the future energy demand and to introduce the necessary government policies. This paper presents the formulation of forecasting models based on the Artificial Neural Network (ANN) for the consumption of conventional energy sources. In India, the total energy consumption for coal, oil, electricity and natural gas would be ...

  • The global energy industry: is competition among suppliers ensured?

    Over the last 15 years, many factors have affected the effective degree of competition in coal, electricity, gas and oil. This paper concentrates on the effects of globalisation, regulatory reform, privatisation and inter-fuel mergers. While demand side globalisation has led to increased competition, greater supply side globalisation might lead to more collusive behaviour in sectors such as coal ...
