How is Smokeless Coal Made?

Anyone who is used to using the traditional house coals we have on offer may have often wondered ‘what is smokeless made from?. The answer to that is anthracite –  a very similar base material to normal coal, but without the usual contaminants like sulfur, making it a much purer carbon. 

The anthracite is then crushed and ground down into a powder, mixed with a smokeless binding agent and re-made into briquettes. Smokeless coal is far more versatile when this process is applied to and can be used in several different appliances as a result.
