2014 National Seminar on Coal Technologies – Geology, Mining, Processing and utility
November 26th 2014 (Wednesday)
Faletti’s Hotel Lahore, Pakistan
Coal is the world’s most abundant and affordable fossil fuel. Currently, *it provides around 30 percent of global primary energy needs, generates 41 percent of the world's electricity and used in the production of about 70 percent world's steel. Pakistan is an energy deficient country and coal can fill the gap between energy demand and supply. In the current scenario, there is dire need for extensive research to improve coal mining and handling, coal processing and cleaning, and to develop cost-effective coal utilization technologies with reduced environmental emissions. This seminar will serve as a kick start event to share research ideas, experiences, success stories and obstacles in coal technology and its usage as an energy source. Moreover, this seminar aims to promote research activities that will improve the economic benefits of Pakistani coal and its utilization.
