THE BENEFIT OF USING STEAM COAL
Using steam coal for various activities can lead to many benefits. Most of the industries in Indonesia and other countries rely on the presence of this steam coal to help to support their daily operations.
It is common that steam coal is one of the major sources of power and heat generation. Therefore, without the presence of this commodity, some industries and factories might not able to run well.
Furthermore, steam coal is the common fuel for electricity generation in many industries. With the use of this steam coal, it will help to deliver sufficient energy that is needed by the industrial to achieve their daily production target.
Without a sufficient amount of this steam coal, then it will be difficult to run production on a normal level as needed.
POTENTIAL USE OF BITUMINOUS COAL
There are two types of coal which are generally used for industrial purposes in Indonesia. Those coal are metallurgical coal and thermal coal or steaming coal.
Metallurgical coal is commonly used as a material for making steel while thermal coal is generally used to generate electricity and thermal energy.
Coal is widely used around the world as the main energy resources along with its availability as sedimentary rock which exists by nature.
According to facts gathered, Indonesian steam coal is one of the most produced coal and expanded as electrical resources, function steam machines and other industrial needs.
On the other hand, Indonesian metallurgical coal is widely used in steel industry. The heat produced by this coal is totally burning. Moreover, the level of heat can even melt iron ore and produce steel.
Indonesian steam coal is primarily produced in Indonesia and turned out to be one of the greatest country who produced steam coal around the world. Furthermore, coal supplies in Indonesia have the capability to increase the investment on this sector.
The use of coal:
1. ELECTRICITY RESOURCE
Did you know that coal contributed 37% of electricity supplies worldwide. On top of that, as of today coal nevertheless is appointed as the primary supply of electricity in comparison to other electricity resources available.
2. METAL PRODUCTION
The basic material to make steel is coke and metallurgical coal. That type of coal is generally mine in Indonesia. Moreover, coal is also used to produce metal such as aluminium and copper.
3. CEMENT PRODUCTION
In the method for producing cement, there are periods of heating and Combustion processes of raw mills. These processes use grinded coal then dried for its fuel.
4. FUEL AND GAS PRODUCTION
Coal that is processed into gasification method will produce dimethyl ether (DME) where this DME can be used for residential purposes such as cooking. Moreover, coal can be produced to be fuel with the liquefaction method.
5. CHEMICAL PRODUCTION
Coal put into the gasification process and become syngas will be produced to be chemical products such as methanol, ammonia, and urea.
6. INDUSTRIAL NEED
There are a large number of industries which use coal as a fuel or main ingredient for their product and manufacture.
For example, textile manufacturers, the paper industry, and the glass industry. Furthermore, coal can be converted into metal and silicon where these items are mostly used by some industrial sectors to produce their products such as personal care and household products.
ADVANTAGES OF INDONESIAN STEAM COAL
There are many advantages of using Indonesian steam coal rather than selecting the steam coal from other countries.
Some of the loyal consumers of this commodity mention that Indonesian steam coal is one of the best due to various points as listed below.
- Majorly the Indonesian steam coal consisting of a high value of calories. Therefore, it is a good point where steam coal can lead to more and higher energy in the industries. A high calorie will produce more power which brings advantage to the daily energy requirement of many industries.
- Indonesian steam coal is also famous for its low level of ash. Therefore, not only provide a safer environment, it also guarantees a better health condition for the community around the industries which using this steam coal.
- Good steam coal will contain less moisture. Therefore, it is dry enough and beneficial to support the best combustion as needed.
- Another advantage is the low percentage of Sulphur that can help to eliminate potential health risks due to the Sulphur content inside it.
Through some short descriptions above, it is pretty sure that Indonesian steam coal is promising and can mention as the best one.
Therefore, it is a good thing to trust Indonesia steam coal company to deliver the best quality of steam coal for various purposes.
