Aims and Objectives
At present, approximately 88% of European demand for crude oil is met from imports. On the other hand many European countries have substantial reserves of coal, including low-grade lignite. Although, lignite remains a crucial contributor to the energy supply in many European countries, its specific physicochemical properties impose many restrictions on their handling and utilisation. As a consequence lignite is primarily used for electricity production close to the mining sites with significant carbon footprint of the overall production chain.
