Solid Fuel, Wikipedia Says
Solid fuel refers to various types of solid
material that are used as fuel to produce energy and provide
heating, usually released through combustion. Solid fuels
include wood (see wood fuel), charcoal, peat, coal, Hexamine
fuel tablets, and pellets made from wood (see wood pellets),
corn, wheat, rye and other grains. Solid-fuel rocket technology
also uses solid fuel (see solid propellants).
Solid fuels have been used by humanity for many years to create
fire. Coal was the fuel source which enabled the industrial
revolution, from firing furnaces, to running steam engines. Wood
was also extensively used to run steam locomotives. Both peat
and coal are still used in electricity generation today.
The use of some solid fuels (e.g. coal) is restricted or
prohibited in some urban areas, due to unsafe levels of toxic
emissions. The use of other solid fuels such as wood is
increasing as heating technology and the availability of good
quality fuel improves. In some areas, smokeless coal is often
the only solid fuel used. In Ireland, peat briquettes are used
for home heating. They are also used to start a coal fire.
Solid fuels are contrasted with liquid fuels and gaseous fuels.
