Peat - Encyclopedia of Geochemistry. form ancient peat deposits into extensive coal and lignite. Throughout the book the interactions between organisms and environmental conditions.

Like any other sediment, peat undergoes diagenesis due to the effects of heat and pressure during burial. The diagenetic process of turning peat into coal is called coalification. As peat undergoes coalification and is compacted by the weight of the overburden, water and other volatiles are squeezed out. The study includes a review of peat literature, selection of a region in the US to locate a hypothetical peat-harvesting operation, and an assessment of current practices for peat utilization in Europe, including peat harvesting, environmental control, and combustion technology.

As nouns the difference between peat and coal is that peat is soil formed of dead but not fully decayed plants found in bog areas or peat can be (obsolete) a pet, a darling; a woman while coal is (uncountable) a black rock formed from prehistoric plant remains, composed largely of carbon and burned as a fuel. As a verb coal is to take on a supply of coal (usually of steam ships). Peat coal definition is - a natural product intermediate between peat and lignite.

Product Type: Book Edition: 1 First Published: Paperback: Lignite, or brown coal, is the lowest-ranked coal, and is placed just above peat in terms of calorific value.

It is not a feature of international seaborne coal trades, primarily due to its high water content (which can reach up to 60 per cent) and its lower Btu values (which average – Btu/lb compared with bituminous coals, which average –14 Btu/lb). Lignite in open-pit mines often self-ignites, especially in areas where subsurface mining occurred.

The elemental proportion of lowly decomposed peat approximates to that of wood, while highly decomposed peat resembles that of the lignite. The organic components of peat can be divided into four groups.

The first group is. Peat has a long geological history dating back to the Late Devonian (Greb et al. ).Burial and heating slowly transform ancient peat deposits into extensive coal and lignite deposits, which are economically important; some modern peat accumulating environments can therefore be used as analogues to understand coal formation (Phillips and Bustin Lignite and brown coal are common names for coals having properties intermediate between peat and bituminous coal as a result of limited coalification.

A lignite stockpile (above) and a lignite briquette. Lignite, often referred to as brown coal, is a soft, brown, combustible, sedimentary rock formed from naturally compressed peat. It is considered the lowest rank of coal due to its relatively low heat content.

It has a carbon content around 60–70 percent. The formation of peat is the first step in the formation of coal. With increasing depth of burial and increasing temperature, peat deposits are gradually changed to lignite.

With increased time and higher temperatures, these low-rank coals are gradually converted to subbituminous and bituminous coal and under certain conditions to anthracite.

In M. Ekenberg's process the wet peat is pulped and milled so as to make it of uniform composition, and the pulp passed into an oven maintained at °–° F., where it is carbonized by superheated water.
