Hydraulic Fracturing Fracking Natural Gas
The Hard Facts About Fracking Natural gas doesn't run our lives As a fossil fuel used to generate electricity, it's in a distant second place behind coal.
Recent advances of sodium borohydride reduction in coal
Clean fuel technologies have been widely developed in current society because fuel combustion can directly bring about the emission of hazardous gasses, i.e. SO 2, sulfate particulate matter (SPM), resulting in environmental pollution and other related problems that endanger public heath and community property; as well as reducing the life of the engine due to corrosion.

Coal Ash Earthjustice
Georgia's coal-fired power plants, after decades of unsafe disposal of coal ash, have severely polluted the underlying groundwater. For the first time in 2018, utilities were forced to publicly report groundwater monitoring data on their websites because of new transparency requirements imposed by 2015 federal coal ash regulations.
Contaminants Found in Groundwater, USGS Water Science School
Contaminants Found in Groundwater Contaminants can be human-induced, as from leaking fuel tanks or toxic chemical spills. Pesticides and fertilizers applied to lawns and crops can accumulate and migrate to the water table. Leakage from septic tanks and/or waste-disposal sites also can introduce bacteria to the water, and pesticides and

Martin County Kentucky Coal Ash Spill
Environmental damage from the Martin County Coal Slurry Spill in Wolf Creek. On October 11, 2000, a coal waste storage facility owned by Massey Energy ruptured, spilling 1.25 million tons of coal sludge (a wet mixture produced by the treatment and cleaning of coal) into rivers and waterways in Martin County, Kentucky, near the town of Inez.

by an environmental disaster in 2000 when a local coal company owned by Massey Energy (now a subsidiary of Alpha Natural Resources. 1) spilled 300 million gallons of coal slurry (waste coal, chemicals and water) that polluted local water supplies. At the time, it was the biggest envi-ronmental catastrophe in the southeastern United States,

COAL- A Fossil Fuel Environmental Initiative Lehigh
The energy in coal comes from the energy stored by plants that lived hundreds of millions of years ago, when the earth was partly covered with swampy forests. For millions of years, a layer of dead plants at the bottom of the swamps was covered by layers of water and dirt, trapping the energy of the dead plants.
Georgia at a Crossroads A Report on Coal Ash Earthjustice
The solution to this problem is to have Georgia regulate coal ash contamination at the site level, rather than at the level of coal ash units. If groundwater at a coal plant shows coal ash contamination, the owner should be required to clean up the source, regardless of whether the coal ash is in a unit that would be regulated by the CCR rule.

Syngas Composition. The figure of gasification reactions and transformations illustrated the concept of coal gasification, and noted resulting composition of syngas. This can vary significantly depending on the feedstock and the gasification process involved; however typically syngas is 30 to 60% carbon monoxide (CO), 25 to 30% hydrogen (H 2 ),
