  • Detector tackles expensive risk of fire during coal transportation

    The risk of fire at points in the process where coal is moved is great due to the friction and dust produced. Increased further by factors such as the growing use of highly volatile Powder River Basin coal, the danger of self-ignition due to oxidation cannot be neglected. With their new detector Land recognise the transfer of coal from railcar to plant as a susceptible point. Land have ...

  • `Chemical fingerprints` could reveal source of mercury pollution

    Scientists have described a new method for tracking down the source of mercury pollution from burning coal. By analysing the chemistry of the pollution, it is possible to identify which region the coal was originally from. Mercury pollution in the atmosphere comes mainly from coal-fired power stations and chemical plants. Mercury is naturally present in coal and is emitted when it is burned as ...
