Anthracite has been in continuous use as an efficient heating fuel since its introduction in the early 1800s, anthracite remains in use today as an environmentally sound fuel source in domestic heating.

No other fuel can equal the level of comfort enjoyed by users of anthracite. Its even heat and high level of BTU's per unit, compared to other fuels, make it the warmest and most comfortable heat source available.

With the development of modern equipment for heating homes, hospitals, greenhouses, factories, and many other buildings, anthracite has reemerged in popularity as a welcome energy resource.

A safe fuel for use in all applications, anthracite is easily stored with little or no deterioration. It does not contaminate soil. It is not volatile and will not explode, and because it has no creosote, the risk of chimney fires is eliminated.

What does the EPA think?

And as proof of its environmental soundness, it has been exempted by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) from any cleaning requirements when burned, even in large quantities for power generation purposes.

In recent years, the use of anthracite for commercial properties has been growing rapidly, ranging from motels and apartment complexes, to banks and airports.

In addition, many institutional users with larger scale heating needs have discovered the efficiency and economy of anthracite, including colleges, public schools, nursing homes, military bases, churches, state office facilities and museums.

Anthracite has long been a valuable resource for use in industrial processes including the production of electricity and steam, metallurgy, glass making, calcification and water purification.
