Was this indifference because environmental consciousness had not then grown? Pollution and generation of energy from coal The conversion of stored thermal energy of coal into thermal/electrical energy occurs through the simultaneous occurrence of three independent processes: 1 2 3 combustion of pulverized coal in the furnace of a boiler with the help of oxygen drawn from atmospheric air; conversion of demineralized water circulating through thousands of water and steam tubes which are heated by the heat energy released by the combustion of coal and conversion of the heat energy of superheated steam into mechanical energy inside the steam turbine in a manner that helps to drive the generator producing electricity.

72 lakhs Rs. 50 lakhs Rs. 00 lakhs Rs. 00 lakhs Rs. 5 lakhs/ha Sub-total Rs. 00 lakhs Rs. 00 lakhs Cost of environmental protection measures The capital costs of individual items have been detailed in the earlier sections.
