car·bon·i·za·tion

 (kär′bə-nĭ-zā′shən)
n.
1. The process of carbonizing.
2. The destructive distillation of bituminous coal, done in the absence of air in order to obtain coke and other fractions having a greater percentage of carbon than the original material.

(ˌkɑr bə nəˈzeɪ ʃən)

n.
1. formation of carbon from organic matter.
2. coal distillation.

carbonization

Anaerobic destructive distillation. Coal forms coke in this process; wood forms charcoal.

It functions by producing heat, which induces hair carbonization.
They compared the production, combustion and gas emissions of biochar -- which is produced by slow heating of the biomass at a temperature of 450 degrees Celsius in an oxygen-free furnace -- with hydrochar, which is made by heating wet biomass to a temperature of up to 250 degrees Celsius under pressure using a process called hydrothermal carbonization (HTC).

The conversion stage consists of three major steps: oxidation, carbonization, and surface treatment.
Since carbon dioxide doesn't mix well with water (like carbonization in pop), this process can take a long time-the electricity will only split molecules that touch the catalyst rod-but researchers at the University of Toronto have discovered a way to speed it up.
It details the theories of origin and formation of coal, its constituents, sampling, calorific value, rank, properties, classification, coking tests, and size, proximate, and ultimate analysis; processing aspects, namely unit operations, screening, size reduction, dewatering, beneficiation processes, gravity concentration processes, heavy medium separation, jigging, flowing film concentration, froth flotation, centrifugal separators, and coal washing; and coal utilization, including carbonization, combustion, gasification, liquefaction, and capture and storage.
