Lowering water use along the coal chain . Water is used in almost every step of coal production although the amount differs between extraction, preparation/washing and processing/conversion as shown in the diagram below. As seen from the above, the range of water use by different processes along the coal chain is wide with the thirstiest being coal-fired power

When considering water use in coal mining and processing, values range between 0.2-4.8 m 3 per tonne of coal: a 24-fold variation. Most probably the actual water use lies somewhere in between. Other estimations of water use along the coal chain by different institutions also show stunning amplitude (more details in our report)

Sep 01, 2012 · Fig. 5 illustrates the sectoral water use in the coal supply chain in 2030. Obviously, water use in coal-fired power generation makes up the largest share, and it has the greatest potential for water savings. In 2008, water use in coal-fired power generation was 78.6 km 3, with the electricity generation of 2759 TW/h. In Scenario 2, coal-fired power generation is 6605 TW/h in 2030, increased by 140 percent, while water use …

According to the US Department of Energy, total water used for coal mining in the United States (including water use for coal washing and cooling of drilling equipment) ranges from 70 million to 260 million gallons a day. Storing coal-mining waste together with the water used to separate it from the coal can present a significant hazard if the impoundments (“slurry ponds”) fail or the slurry breaks through into …

Raw water use in IGCC plants is lower than in pulverized coal plants. Without CCS, PC plants have a much higher steam turbine output, requiring more cooling water and condenser duties (typical raw water use ratio of 1.7:1.0). With carbon capture, the difference in water use is even more dramatic (2.5:1.0), as the chemical absorption process for CO 2 capture in PC plants (amine) requires even

Additional critical water quality issues demanding close attention are: (1) leaching and migration of trace elements contained in uncombusted coal residuals; (2) acidification of water resources resulting from increased emissions and deposition of sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxide; and (3) local and regional water quality problems resulting from reduced surface water dilution capacity due to increased water …

Apr 04, 2021 · For eight Coal Generators you either need three Water Extractors at 100% (3*20 = 60 MW) or four Water Extractors at 75% (12.6 * 4 = 50.4 MW). This can be useful early on when you still need to save up on energy consumption on Water Extractors. A Water Extractor has about the same width as two Coal Generators so it would be easier to tile the layout

Considering the fact that water availability is getting increasingly reduced and also the cost of water is increasing, the study is aimed to identify the areas in which the water consumption can be reduced and also to identify the possibility of its alternate use within the plant such as additional capacity addition (which otherwise is not feasible due to non-availability of new water linkages
