What is the heat content of coal in mmbtu per ton?
Anthracite Anthracite is coal with the highest carbon content, between 86 and 98 percent, and a heat value of nearly 15,000 BTUs-per-pound. Most frequently associated with home heating, anthracite is a very small segment of the U.S. coal market. There are 7.3 billion tons of anthracite reserves in the United States, found mostly in 11 northeastern counties in Pennsylvania. Bituminous The most plentiful form of coal in the United States, bituminous coal is used primarily to generate electricity and make coke for the steel industry. The fastest growing market for coal, though still a small one, is supplying heat for industrial processes. Bituminous coal has a carbon content ranging from 45 to 86 percent carbon and a heat value of 10,500 to 15,500 BTUs-per-pound. Subbituminous Ranking below bituminous is subbituminous coal with 35-45 percent carbon content and a heat value between 8,300 and 13,000 BTUs-per-pound. Reserves are located mainly in a half-dozen Western states and Alaska. Although its heat value is lower, this coal generally has a lower sulfur content than other types, which makes it attractive for use because it is cleaner burning. Lignite Lignite is a geologically young coal which has the lowest carbon content, 25-35 percent, and a heat value ranging between 4,000 and 8,300 BTUs-per-pound. Sometimes called brown coal, it is mainly used for electric power generation.

30,000,000 BTUs Per Ton. Will vary depending on the grade of coal.
20 Million BTU ****************** The heat content of coal varies. Bituminous coal typically has a gross heating value of 30,600,000 BTU per ton. The net heatin…g value is 26,000,000 BTU per ton, assuming 85% efficiency. If you need more precise information, go to the U.S. Department of Energy website at www.doe.gov and search on the heat content of coal. -ecn
What is the monthly US domestic metallurgical coal price per metric ton at the port for US exports - 122007 12008?
Current prices are in the range of $200 to $300 per tonne.
It should be according to the quality of the gas, but roughly 1 metric Tonne = 48 MMBtu (Downey, M. 2010, Oil101) 1 metric Tonne = 48.7 MMBtu (Foss, M. 2007, Introduction t…o LNG, pag. 38,
A metric ton is 1000 kg (2204.621 lbs). This is nearly equal to a long ton (old English measure for coal) of 2240 lbs. The English (US) short ton measure is 2000 lbs. If a bag… is 40 kg then a metric ton would be 25 bags, a short ton a little more than 22 bags and a long ton a little more than 25 bags.
1 Ton(2000lbs) coal is appox 40 cubic feet this varies by the character of the coal and the honesty of the weight
MMBTU is an acronym for "Million Metric British Thermal Units." The M's represent the Roman numeral for one thousand. One thousand thousands equal one million, thus MMBTU, not… "Million Metric"
Those two items are equal in weight. Each weighs exactly 2,000 pounds.
It is $3010 American Dollars Per Metric Tonne
Too many variables to answer- type of coal? Pickup or delivered? Where? Prices may range from $30-$65 per ton.
Depending on the quality; $70 to $400.00 per Lb. Wyoming coal is about $45 per Lb. If you're lucky enough to find a small piece of coal at least worth an ounce you can get up …to $25 at your local pawn shop or jewelry sellers / buyers.
It compacts and increases as moisture and volatile hydrocarbons are driven off. Coal has a carbon content between 75 and 90 % , lignite (brown coal) hasn't completed the trans…formation and contains more moisture and nitrogen than bituminous or anthracite coals. Lignite has about 30 to 40% carbon content.
