Services Details

Coal is a type of sedimentary rock that is combustible. It appears in black or brownish-black colour. Mostly, coal contains carbon and variable amounts of other chemical elements such as hydrogen, sulfur, oxygen, and nitrogen. There are different types of coal, such as peat, lignite, sub-bituminous coal, bituminous coal, etc. depending on the composition. Also, we can categorize coal into different types according to the application; thermal coal and coking coal are to such categories.
Thermal Coal
Thermal coal is a type of coal that is mainly used for the generation of power. This type of coal can produce electricity upon heating. Thermal coal is also named as steam coal. This type of coal plays a vital role in electricity generation worldwide. This material is the source of heat for about 40% of the electricity generation globally.

Coking Coal
Coking coal is a type of coal that is important in making high-quality coke. It is also called metallurgical coal. This substance is an essential fuel and is useful as a reactant in the blast furnace process of primary steelmaking. Therefore, the demand for this type of coal is parallel to that of steel. Due to the same reason, steel making companies have a division that produces coking coal in order to get a low-cost supply for their steel production process.
