  • Combustion Quality of Coal and Lignite
About the Book.

The book features all of many more so as to capture the State of the art of coal combustion quality at the mine, power, steel and cement plants. Arguably, this is the first book of its kind where a unification of the requirements of different plants producing and using coal is defined .It provides both technical and managerial aspects of coal quality assurance and deliverance.

Professor Jayanta Bhattacharya's book is thus not only topical, but timely as well and provides an outstanding compilation on Coal Quality and its relevance to producing and utilizing industries. This is perhaps the first book of its kind in the world that captures unifying quality aspects of coal and lignite for all types of user industries.
