Coal, a sedimentary rock composed mainly of carbon, is used to produce electricity or heat through combustion. It currently meets nearly a third of the world’s energy needs and produces roughly two fifths of global electricity. Coke, a fuel usually derived from coal is used for smelting iron ore during steel manufacturing.
