'Coal' and 'China' to some extent have become synonymous. China is by far the largest user of coal in the world. In , coal production in China amounted to billion tons, about half of the total global coal production. Coal consumption accounts for more than 65% of primary energy consumption in China. The Chinese coal industry greatly contributes to the economic development in China. Coal Geology of China (Vol) Author: Sponsored by China National Administration of Coal Geology Language: Chinese Published on: Hardcover No Coal Geology (1) The. This book brings together experts on almost every aspect of coal geology, coal production, composition and use of the coal and its by-products, and coal's environmental and human health impacts. The chapters in this book were originally published in a special issue of the International Geology Review. Coal Geology covers all aspects of coal geology in one volume, bridging the gap between the academic aspects and the practical role of geology in the coal industry. The object of the book is to provide the reader with a with a description of the origins of coal together with the physical and chemical properties of coal and coal petrology before proceeding to cover all areas of coal exploration, production and use.4/5(1).
The coal geology of China ANDREW C. SCOTT Andrew C. Scott is Senior Lecturer in Geology at Royal Holloway, University of London, and Mao Bangzhuo is head of the China Coal Geological by: 2. China is the major consumer of coal worldwide, accounting for 50% of the total annual world coal consumption  and coal utilization will continue to play a leading role in energy consumption in. The International Journal of Coal Geology deals with fundamental and applied aspects of the geology and petrology of coal, oil/gas source rocks and shale gas resources. The journal aims to advance the exploration, exploitation and utilization of these resources, and to stimulate environmental awareness. The International Journal of Coal Geology deals with fundamental and applied aspects of the geology and petrology of coal, oil/gas source rocks and shale gas resources. The journal aims to advance the exploration, exploitation and utilization of these resources, and to stimulate environmental awareness as well as advancement of engineering for effective resource management.
The supporting text provides an introductory overview of coal exploration, mining, and coalbed methane (CBM) development, followed by discussions on various megascopic aspects of coal geology (microscopic aspects are covered in Volume 2). Because of the vast subject matter, many generalities had to be made in the text. China is a major coal-producing country, and it accounts for about one-third of the annual global output of coal. Coal is one of China’s primary energy sources, it provides about three-fourths of the energy that is consumed in the whole country, and it is expected to be its principal energy source for the foreseeable future (Mao and Xu, ). Coal reservoir geology in some basins or regions in China are still not well understood because of the complexity of the geological settings. At present, large-scale CBM production in China only occurs within the Qinshui and Ordos basins, mostly sourced from middle-to-high rank coal by: There is a chapter on the history of coal in China. Then, the book ends with a summary/review chapter, named, "A Burning Legacy." Again, it tells us that coal took Britain from a rural nation to a world-class commercial power. It made London the largest city in the world.4/4(83).
