9780123969729: Coal and Coalbed Gas: Fueling the Future

Bridging the gap in expertise between coal and coalbed gas, subfields in which opportunities for cross training have been nonexistent, Coal and Coalbed Gas sets the standard for publishing in these areas. This book treats coal and coalbed gas as mutually inclusive commodities in terms of their interrelated origin, accumulation, composition, distribution, generation, and development, providing a balanced understanding of this energy mix.

Currently considered a non-renewable energy resource, coalbed gas, or coalbed methane, is a form of natural gas extracted from coal beds. In recent years, countries have begun to seek and exploit coal for its clean gas energy in an effort to alleviate environmental issues that come with coal use, making a book on this topic particularly timely. This volume takes into account processes of coalification, gasification, and storage and reservoir characterization and evaluation and looks at water management and environmental impacts as well.

  • Covers environmental issues in the development of coalbed gas
  • Includes case studies, field guides and data, examples, and analytical procedures from previous studies and investigations
  • Accessible by a large multidisciplinary market by one of the world's foremost experts on the topic

From the Back Cover:

Coal and Coalbed Gas: Fueling the Future is one of the only books to address combined coal and coalbed gas, its environmental impacts, and its role in our future energy. This book sets the standard by bridging the gap in expertise between coal and coalbed gas, in which opportunities for cross-training have been nonexistent. This book treats coal and coalbed gas as mutually inclusive commodities in terms of their interrelated origin, accumulation, composition, distribution, generation, and development, providing a balanced understanding of this energy mix.

This book is particularly timely as developing countries have begun to exploit coal for its clean gas energy in an effort to alleviate environmental issues that come with coal use. Coal and Coalbed Gas takes into account the processes of peatification, coalification, gasification, and storage and reservoir characterization and evaluation and looks at water management and environmental impacts as well. The book insightfully assesses the potential of biogenic coalbed gas as a viable energy of the future.

Key Features:

  • International relevance in anticipation of short- and long-term use of coal and coalbed gas
  • Covers environmental issues in the development of coal and coalbed gas
  • Includes case studies, field guides and data, examples, and analytical procedures from previous studies and investigations
  • Accessible to a large multidisciplinary market
