Coal is abundant and inexpensive. This is particularly important today as we seek ways to decrease our dependence on oil and devise more efficient, cleaner means of energy production. The Handbook of Coal Analysis, Second Edition provides users with everything they need to know about testing and analysis of coal. The new edition also covers the environmental issues related to coal use as well as the effects of combustion products on the atmosphere.
This handbook deals with the various aspects of coal analysis and provides a detailed explanation of the necessary standard tests and procedures that are applicable to coal in order to help define usage and behavior relative to environmental issues. More importantly, it provides details of the meaning of various test results and how they might be applied to predict coal behavior during use. Chapters include:
Now in its Second edition, the Handbook has been rewritten to include new coverage on environmental issues and regulations as related to coal. A glossary at the end of the book provides terms that are useful to the reader. The book provides the advantages and limitations in understanding the quality and performance of coal. Chemists and engineers in the refining industry, as well as students, will find Dr. Speight’s Handbook to be an accessible, invaluable guide to understanding the methods for analyzing petroleum products.
James G. Speight has doctorate degrees in Chemistry, Geological Sciences, and Petroleum Engineering and is the author of more than 60 books in petroleum science, petroleum engineering, fossil fuel science and technology, and environmental sciences. He has more than 45 years of experience in the process industries, is the author of numerous invited book chapters and papers, is the senior editor of three journals, and has won numerous international awards and distinctions.
