Title: Electrochemical extinguishing of burning lignite piles

Abstract

New possibilities of auto-ignition of solid combustible materials are discussed from the view-point of redox processes. All theories consider the oxidation of coal as a complicated physicochemical process of the interaction of air with coal matter. However, the reduction of any oxidizing agent present is always associated with the oxidation of the organic and mineral parts of a combustible material. It therefore became necessary to consider the natural phenomenon of autooxidation as a combined redox process. Extinguishing fires in lignite piles and pillars is discussed.
