About Coal

Coal is known as a combustible black or brownish-black sedimentary rock, which is made as rock strata called coal seams. Coal is composed of mostly carbon with variable amounts of other elements, chiefly hydrogen, sulphur, oxygen, and nitrogen. Coal is made when dead plant matter is decayed into peat and gets converted into coal by the action of heat and pressure of deep burial over thousands of years. Coal serves as a primary source of energy at several industries, including iron and steel.
