How many grades of coal are there?

Coal is classified into four main types, or ranks: anthracite, bituminous, subbituminous, and lignite. The ranking depends on the types and amounts of carbon the coal contains and on the amount of heat energy the coal can produce. What are the three grades of coal? What are the types of coal? Anthracite: The highest rank of coal.

Anthracite - Wikipedia

Anthracite, also known as hard coal, is a hard, compact variety of coal that has a submetallic luster.It has the highest carbon content, the fewest impurities, and the highest energy density of all types of coal and is the highest ranking of coals.. Anthracite is the most metamorphosed type of coal (but still represents low-grade metamorphism), in which the carbon content is between 86% and 98%.

Anthracite is a high-rank coal, representing a coal that has been subjected to the highest grade of metamorphism. Anthracite is shiny black, hard and brittle (see Figure 2.8) and has the highest fixed-carbon content (approximately 86–98%).Due to its low volatile matter (2–12%), anthracite's combustion process is slow. Most anthracites have low-moisture content (about 3–6%) and their ...
