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.

How many people have died from heat waves per ton of carbon emissions?

People do die in heat waves and global warming is real, but it is not possible to attribute any one extreme weather event to global warming and therefore it is not possible to say how many have died from this cause and because of global warming. The world currently produces around 30 billion metric (MORE)

What is mmbtu?

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"

As coal forms how does its carbon content change?

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 transformation and contains more moisture and nitrogen than bituminous or anthracite coals. Lignite has about 30 to 40% carbon con (MORE)

How many kilowatthours are produced by 1 ton bituminous coal?

Coal has an energy value of 24 Megajoules/kg, which is the same as 6.67 kwh/kg. However a coal fired power plant will only have an efficiency of about 30 per cent so this reduces to 2.0 kwh/kg. Now when you say 1 ton, do you mean 2240 lb, 2000 lb, or 1000 kg (metric ton) ? I will assume 1000kg as (MORE)

Is kilocalories heat content of food or energy content of food?

It could be either; but when you are talking about food, what is of interest is usually the energy content - meaning, chemical energy stored in the food. Heat IS energy, and a kilocalorie is the energy required to heat one kilogram of water by one degree Celsius.
