The new CME Group Illinois Basin Coal Futures will have a contract size of 1,750 short tons, average heat content of 11,500 Btu/lb and will be deliverable on the Ohio River, a primary corridor in the domestic coal transport network.
The recent study is an update to a 2007 report, which analyzed MSW heat content from 1989 to 2005.
While lower in heat content, it is much lower in ash and sulfur.
According to measurements by an array of autonomous free-floating ocean floats called Argo, as well as by earlier devices called expendable bathythermographs, or XBTs, that were dropped from ships to obtain temperature data, ocean heat content has increased over the last 16 years.
The exploration of combining the V-process benefits with the advantages of magnesium was challenging due to the low thermal heat content and high chemical reactivity of magnesium," said Bakhtiyarov.
Average analysis from prospecting samples, when washed showed an average recovery of 70% with heat content in excess of 13,000 BTU's.
Moreover, many of the 'experts' consulted warned that it probably could not be done because of two primary issues--magnesium's low thermal heat content (heat loss of the metal as it burns out the foam pattern would create misfill castings) and concern that the chemical reactivity of magnesium would be affected by the coated foam pattern.
In addition to mercury removal, the plant benefited from the increased heat content of the bituminous coal.
Calculated annually by EIA by dividing the heat content of dry natural gas produced (see Natural Gas Production, Dry) and natural gas plant liquids produced (see Natural Gas Plant Liquids Production) by the total quantity of marketed natural gas produced.
Magnesium has a very low specific heat content, which means that it cools very quickly, running the risk of solidification during filling.
