Thermal Coal as Fuel:-

The main use of coal is as a solid fuel for the production of electricity and heat via the combustion process. In the year 2010, the global coal consumption was around 7.25 billion tonnes, a good 7.99 billion tons short of the demand. In an estimation, by 2030 the demand of coal will increase by 48% to 9.05 billion tonnes (9.98 billion short tons). In the year 2011, the coal production and shortage in various countries is tabulated:
