Certain issues surround its utilisation, however, including emissions of pollutants and growing concern about climate change. Coal, one of the most important primary fossil fuels, a solid carbon-rich material, usually brown or black, that most often occurs in stratified sedimentary deposits, which may later be subjected to high temperatures and pressures during mountain building, resulting in.
