  • Anthracite Coal is very shiny, hard black coal, high carbon content and energy density, repels moisture, for domestic industrial uses, including smokeless fuel
  • Bituminous Coal is softer and shiny, moisture content is 8 -20%, possible for coking coals, volatile matter from 16% - 40%, can be used for thermal or metallurgical applications
  • Sub-bituminous Coal is soft and black with energy density lower than bituminous coal, most common type for electricity generation
  • Lignite Coal is light brown with high moisture content and low energy density, used mainly for electricity generation
