The emission of gases such as sulphur dioxide, nitrogen dioxide etc. is cause of concern from ecological perspectives. These gases can be scrubbed off by using gas absorption and other techniques. Removal of sulphur from fuel can reduce the emission of oxides of sulphur. Coal is one major fuel resource in many sectors. Sulphur can be removed from coal by leaching, bioleaching, precipitation etc. Investigations are reported on various methods for sulphur removal from coal using different methods. Also studies are reported on optimization of the sulphur removal technique by various investigators. Current review summarizes studies and research on sulphur removal from coal.
Key words: leaching, bacteria, removal, desulphurization, time, concentration.
