Risks in coal transportation
Coal is formed from dead vegetation, preserved about 300 million years ago, through the cooperation of biochemical and geological processes. One of the challenges during transporting large quantities of coal is that coal can spontaneously heat up, emit explosive gases, and corrode hulls.
Factors that cause coal to self-heat to ignite include:
- Oxygen supplies are available from the air;
- The large surface area of the cargo through which an oxidation reaction can take place;
- Presence of moisture;
- Insulation makes the internal heat unable to spread.
In addition, coal Bituminous and anthracite coal emit methane, a flammable gas with air explosion limit of very low (4.4%). Explosions are often caused by methane ignition in cargo.
