Lignite coal is mined commercially at five surface mine sites in the state (and one mine a few miles away in Montana). That lignite, in turn, produces power at six instate power plants. Great River Energy runs the Spiritwood Station, which is a combined heat and power plant.
Lignite has the lowest ranking in the coal classifiion system, and it is mostly used as fuel in the power sector. Lignite''s colour ranges from brown to black (see Figure 2.7) and its heating value is less than 19.306 KJ/Kg. Due to the fact that lignite deposits are geologically young they may contain plant debris.

Principle Of CFBC Technology (What is CFBC?) GIPCLSLPP has setup 2 X 125 MW CFBC units at Mangrol, Surat. This CFBC technology utilizes the fluidized bed principle in which crushed lignite of around 10 mm size along with limestone (Powder) as sorbent are injected into the combustor.
With a billion euros already sunk in the plant, Uniper''s decision to proceed is understandable. On the other hand, the outlook for coal power is bleak in Germany. If Datteln 4 goes into operation in, say, 2018, it may only have 20 years to stay in operation. That''s because the coal sector is currently being sidelined on the power market.

LIGNITEBASED POWER PLANT. The Lippendorf power station, 15km south of Leipzig, was the second station in a new series in the lignite fields of the new German Lander. Employing new hightemperature technology and with a 42.4% design efficiency, the units set new standards for lignitebased power plants.
The future of lignite power 5 of 88%, with ca. 7.700 average operating hours /1/. The growth of 7% in lignite production between 2011 and 2013 was mainly due to the shutdown of ca. 6.3 GW nuclear power plant capacity after Fukushima /3/.
