Sulfur Coal - an overview | ScienceDirect Topics

The total sulfur content of the high organic sulfur coals ranges from 3.7-4.1 wt.% with about 75% of the sulfur existing as organic sulfur (Table 2 ). The total sulfur content of the low organic sulfur coal was 1.2 wt.% and 60% of the sulfur was in organic form. The total sulfur contents of the ICDACs were between 0.85 to 2.6 wt.% ( Table 3 ).

Comparison of structural characteristics of high-organic ...

High-organic-sulfur coal has unique structural characteristics due to its high organic sulfur content. To study the influence of organic sulfur in coal on the molecular structure of coal, a series of high-organic-sulfur coals and low-organic-sulfur coals of different coal ranks were selected, and their structural parameters were compared and analyzed through FTIR and Raman spectroscopy.

Monitoring the sulfur content of coal streams by thermal ...

The sulfur content of up to 10 tons per hour of coal was determined in pilot plant tests with a prototype meter. The precision of 0.04 percent sulfur substantiates the validity of the theory. In subsequent industrial plant tests the precision was determined to be a comparable 0.05 percent sulfur.

Sulphur Content - an overview | ScienceDirect Topics

3.8.14 Cleaning of High Sulfur Coal. The high sulfur content of coal has been recognized as the source of air pollution problems (acid rain), particularly from electricity generation and in industrial boilers, and also a cause of other environmental problems such as acid mine drainage due to oxidation of pyritic sulfur in coals.

What is the content of sulphur in Indian coal? - Quora

Answer (1 of 2): The determination limit for sulfur is approximately 50 m g (30-percent relative standard deviation), which is equivalent to a 0.01 percent sulfur in 0.5 g of coal. Sulfur is one of the hazardous elements in coal. The concentrations of sulfur are relatively high in coal…

SULFUR CONTENT OF THE COAL RESOURCES OF THE UNITED …

The sulfur content of United States coal can be assessed using a variety of approaches. The sulfur content may be expressed in terms of total sulfur in the coal, pounds of sulfur per million Btu, or sulfur remaining after reduction by coal preparation. In addition, sulfur content may be applied to the demonstrated reserve base or to coal resource estimates.

Sulfur in coals: A review of geochemistry and origins ...

For medium-sulfur (1 to < 3% S) and high-sulfur (≥ 3% S) coals, there are two major sources of sulfur: 1) parent plant material, and 2) sulfate in seawater that flooded peat swamps. Abundances of sulfur in coal are largely controlled by the degree of seawater influence during peat accumulation and by postdepositional changes (diagenesis).

COAL CHARACTERISTICS - Purdue University

Indiana Center for Coal Technology Research 12 SULFUR IN COAL Although coal is primarily a mixture of carbon (black) & hydrogen (red) atoms, sulfur atoms (yellow) are also trapped in coal, primarily in two forms. In one form, (1) the sulfur is a separate particle often linked with iron (green, pyritic sulfur) with no connection to the carbon ...

How Coal Works | Union of Concerned Scientists

Sulfur content is determined by the conditions under which the coal is formed. Low-sulfur coal deposits develop in freshwater environments; high-sulfur deposits come from brackish swamps or marine-influenced environments . In the United States, the sulfur content of coal varies along geographic lines, with most—though not all— eastern coal ...

U.S. Coal Reserves: An Update by Heat and Sulfur Content

Sulfur content values of coal are considered low, medium, or high in relation to the potential of the coal, when burned, to produce sulfur dioxide emissions below, near, or above increments allowed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency under the Clean Air Act, New …

Chapter 7 COAL - Pennsylvania State University

Coal is an organic rock (as opposed to most other rocks in the earth's crust, such as clays and sandstone, which are inorganic); it contains mostly carbon (C), but it also has hydrogen (H), oxygen (O), sulfur (S) and nitrogen (N), as well as some inorganic constituents (minerals) and water (H2O).

Sulfur Forms, Coal Analysis, Kentucky Geological Survey ...

Sulfur Forms. Three forms of sulfur occur in coal: (1) organic, (2) inorganic, and (3) elemental. Understanding the forms of sulfur in a coal is important because coal preparation can reduce the inorganic (pyritic and sulfate) sulfur in coal, but not the organically bound sulfur in coal.

A review of the relationships between sulfur content in coal seams and depositional environments of coals was made for cases from world coalfields. 2. Abundance and forms of sulfur in coal. The sulfur content in coals varies considerably but is most commonly within the range of 0.5% to 5% total sulfur.
