At various times in the geological past, the Earth had dense forests in low-lying wetland areas. Due to natural processes such as flooding, these forests were buried under the soil. As more and more soil deposited over them, they were compressed. The temperature also rose as they sank deeper and deeper. Under high pressure and high temperature, dead vegetation was slowly converted to coal.
How do we use it?
Although used as feedstock, coal is not a hydrocarbon, but a fossil fuel due to its composition. Our technology does not burn coal but ionises its carbon content to generate gases which are then used to create electric power.
As there is no combustion, this allows a substantial reduction of the overall carbon footprint of the electricity we generate
Coal will remain for many years the prime source of power generation feedstock, as in excess of 7.25 billion tons are consumed per year for electricity generation worldwide. "This tree will be coal in a few hundred million years" We will use such an abundant source of energy for its chemical composition values, therefore reducing the emissions of carbon monoxide, thanks to our unique technology – the cloud cavitation reactor.
