Fossil Fuels - Coal, Oil and Natural Gas Where Fossil Fuels Come From As the trees and plants died, they sank to the bottom of the swamps of oceans. They formed layers of a spongy material called peat. Over many hundreds of years, the peat was covered by sand and clay and other minerals, which turned into a type of rock called sedimentary. More and more rock piled on top of more rock, and it weighed more and more. It began to press down on the peat. The peat was squeezed and squeezed until the water came out of it and it eventually, over millions of years, it turned into coal, oil or petroleum, and natural gas. Coal The earliest known use of coal was in China. Coal from the Fu-shun mine in northeastern China may have been used to smelt copper as early as 3,000 years ago. The Chinese thought coal was a stone that could burn. Coal is found in many of the lower 48 states of U.S. and throughout the rest of the world. Coal is mined out of the ground using various methods. Some coal mines are dug by sinking vertical or horizontal shafts deep under ground, and coal miners travel by elevators or trains deep under ground to dig the coal. Other coal is mined in strip mines where huge steam shovels strip away the top layers above the coal. The layers are then restored after the coal is taken away. The coal is then shipped by train and boats and even in pipelines. In pipelines, the coal is ground up and mixed with water to make what's called a slurry. This is then pumped many miles through pipelines. At the other end, the coal is used to fuel power plants and other factories.

Fossil Fuels
Fossil fuels - coal, oil and natural gas currently provide more than 85% of all the energy consumed in the United States, nearly two-thirds of our electricity, and virtually all of our transportation fuels. Moreover, it is likely that the nation's reliance on fossil fuels to power an expanding economy will actually increase over at least the next two decades even with aggressive development and deployment of new renewable and nuclear technologies. Because our economic health depends on the continued availability of reliable and affordable fossil fuels, the Department of Energy's Office of Fossil Energy oversees two major fossil fuel efforts: 1) Emergency stockpiles of crude oil and heating oil The Department is responsible for maintaining the readiness of the Strategic Petroleum Reserve and the Northeast Home Heating Oil Reserve . In the event of a major supply interruption, the President could order emergency stocks from either of these two reserves to be released into the market. 2) Research and Development of future fossil energy technologies Innovative technologies can make the future production and use of fossil fuels more efficient and environmentally cleaner. Energy's Fossil Energy program, through the National Energy Technology Laboratory, is developing a full array of new technologies that can locate and produce oil and gas beyond the reach of today's technologies, overcome the environmental challenges of using coal, and extract

General Information Farrell-Cooper coal mining operation at Bates, Arkansas (circa 2006 photo). The coal that was mined at this locale is the Pennsylvanian Lower Hartshorne coal which has a rank of low-volatile bituminous. Onsite primary crusher stockpiles the Lower Hartshorne coal at the Bates, Arkansas operation before final shipment of the product to Oklahoma power plants (photo taken in 2006). Use of Arkansas Coal Location and General Geology Arkansas' coal fields are located in the Arkansas River valley between the western border of the state and Russellville, encompassing an area about 33 miles wide and 60 miles long . Formations of Pennsylvanian age in west-central Arkansas contain at least 25 coal beds, but only the Lower Hartshorne, Charleston, and Paris coal beds have been mined to any appreciable extent . The Lower Hartshorne coal bed near the base of the McAlester Formation (Des Moines, Pennsylvanian) is the thickest and the most extensive coal bed in Arkansas. It has been, and will continue to be, the most economically important coal bed . Commercial mining of coal in Arkansas has been limited to Johnson, Sebastian, Logan, Franklin, Pope, and Scott Counties

Table of Content Introduction Chapter Energy - What Is It? Chapter ... Conclusion
Introduction Energy is one of the most fundamental parts of our universe. We use energy to do work. Energy lights our cities. Energy powers our vehicles, trains, planes and rockets. Energy warms our homes, cooks our food, plays our music, gives us pictures on television. Energy powers machinery in factories and tractors on a farm. Energy from the sun gives uslight during the day. It dries our clothes when they're hanging outside on a clothes line. It helps plants grow. Energy stored in plants is eaten by animals, giving them energy. And predator animals eat their prey, which gives the predator animal energy. Everything we do is connected to energy in one form or another. Energy is defined as: " the ability to do work. " When we eat, our bodies transform the energy stored in the food into energy to do work. When we run or walk, we "burn" food energy in our bodies. When we think or read or write, we are also doing work. Many times it's really hard work!

11. COAL FOSSIL FUEL Coal, oil and other fossil fuels as energy providers for electricity, manufacturing and transport.
COAL HOME BIOLOGY FILMS GEOGRAPHY ... SPONSORS Coal (previously referred to as pitcoal or seacoal ) is a fossil fuel extracted from the ground by underground mining or open-pit mining (surface mining). It is a readily combustible black or brownish-black sedimentary rock. It is composed primarily of carbon along with assorted other elements, including sulfur. Often associated with the Industrial Revolution, coal remains an enormously important fuel and is the largest single source of electricity world-wide. In the United States, for example, the coal power plants generate 50% of the electricity produced. In the UK, coal supplies 28% of electricity production (as of October 2004). This is decreasing due to abundant supplies of North Sea natural gas. Coal
Etymology and folklore
The word "coal" came from Anglo-Saxon col , which meant charcoal. Coal was not mined in Britain before the high Middle Ages; i.e. after ca. 1000 AD. Mineral coal was referred to as seacoal , probably because it came to many places in eastern England including London by sea. This is a more likely explanation than that it was found on beaches occasionally having fallen from the exposed coal seams above or washed out of underwater coal seam outcrops. In

Fossil fuel
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to: navigation search Coal, one of the fossil fuels. Fossil fuels are fuels formed by natural resources such as anaerobic decomposition of buried dead organisms . The age of the organisms and their resulting fossil fuels is typically millions of years, and sometimes exceeds 650 million years. The fossil fuels, which contain high percentages of carbon , include coal, petroleum, and natural gas. Fossil fuels range from volatile materials with low carbon hydrogen ratios like methane , to liquid petroleum to nonvolatile materials composed of almost pure carbon, like anthracite coal . Methane can be found in hydrocarbon fields, alone, associated with oil, or in the form of methane clathrates . It is generally accepted that they formed from the fossilized remains of dead plants and animals by exposure to heat and pressure in the Earth's crust over millions of years. This biogenic theory was first introduced by Georg Agricola in 1556 and later by Mikhail Lomonosov in the 18th century. It was estimated by the Energy Information Administration that in 2007 primary sources of energy consisted of petroleum 36.0%, coal 27.4%, natural gas 23.0%, amounting to an 86.4% share for fossil fuels in primary energy consumption in the world.

Fossil Fuels: Coal
Fossil Fuels Coal Gas Oil ... Nuclear There is an abundant supply of coal in the UK. Coal is a non-renewable fossil fuel consisting of the compressed remains of ancient swamp forests. As such, coal is found under sedimentary rock. Unfortunately, burning coal produces huge amounts of the greenhouse gas , carbon dioxide (CO ). This is a major contributor to global warming The other gases produced are also a major contributor to acid rain . There is even evidence that the smoke contributes to something known as global dimming , whereby less sunlight reaches the ground, so cooling the earth. This has alarmed many people as it may be hiding the true effects of global warming. Choose from the links above. Go back a page Energy Menu
