Being thermal coal such an abundant resource in Spain, we are looking for alternative uses for it. This would enable its future use in different fields, same of them already classic, such as: new materials (graphene, activated carbon, molecular sieves, etc.), nano-technology, in situ energy use (gasification and liquefaction), CBM (coal bed methane), ECBM (coal bed methane with CO2 injection) and CMM (coal mine methane). It could also be used in other innovative areas with high added value, such as gastronomy and biomedicine.
