The paper discusses coal utilisation in Sweden. All hard coals have to be imported from other countries. Peat from domestic sources is used as a complement. Environmental legislation and taxation on fuel and emissions are severe. This situation affects the procurement, preparation, handling and use of coal. The paper presents: • R&D projects concerning deep cleaning of thermal coal. • Handling and treatment of coal used in PFBC boilers and for blast furnace injection • Dust prevention for coal and peat briquettes. Procurement of coal emphasising quality and environmental issues.
