Global coal logistics market: Emerging coal to liquid industry
The process of converting coal to liquid fuel is called coal liquefication. With fluctuating crude oil prices, which varied from more than USD 100 per barrel in 2014 to less than USD 50 per barrel in 2017, the demand for alternative fuel has increased. Liquid coal is among the alternatives of crude oil apart from other fuels such as biomass and oil shale.
“Liquid fuels derived from coal emits less air pollutants when burned than coal combustion. Liquid fuels have low levels of oxides of nitrogen and are also sulfur free. Using carbon capture and storage, coal plants can provide electricity for electric personal vehicles,” says a senior analyst at Technavio for research on logistics.
