Overview

During the refinement process, coal plants produce fine coal that is often considered a waste product. Green Coal has two applications. Firstly, to produce briquettes from the fine coal which are suitable for industrial applications. Secondly, Green Coal can be purposed to absorbing harmful gaseous emissions in the downstream coal purification process, removing sulphur oxide and nitrogen oxide gases from the coal source to produce a more “Eco-Friendly” coal.
