Investigating Reactive Ball Milling of Anthracite Coal
Development of alternative energy technologies is the key to address future energy concerns of depleting fossil fuel reserves and the hydrogen economy is one of the forerunners amongst the various options being considered. A combined hydrogen production and storage process using coal as a precursor and ball milling it in the presence of a hydrogen donating solvent is investigated here. Tests of our current hypotheses that ball milling induces cross links in the coal structure facilitated by the evolution of hydrogen will be presented. The effect of mineral matter present in the coals has been investigated as well and will be presented along with the possible commercial applications.
