Bituminous coal is typically sold as a bulk commodity, but in some cases Hiller provides pulverized bituminous coal for industrial and chemical applications. We provide bituminous coal to industrial users for electricity generation. Typical coals used include:
- Compliance bituminous coal
- Low ash bituminous coal
There are many regions around the United States with bituminous, non-metallurgical coals. The premium products are those with a low ash, low sulfur, and BTU ranging from 12,500-13,000 (+7000 kg/cals). These coals are closer to the surface in most cases and are mined via surface and shallow deep/drift mines.
Bituminous coal has wider applications and are typically used in industrial, utility and steam generation applications like boilers. These coals work well in a number of applications other than steel making.
