Institute for Advanced Engineering

Dr. Yongseung Yun obtained a BSc from Yonsei University, Korea, in 1979, a master’s degree from Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST), in 1981, and a Ph.D. from the University of Utah, USA, in 1990. He is a chair researcher at the Institute for Advanced Engineering (IAE), Korea. From 1981 to 1984 Dr. Yun researched coal–oil agglomeration and fluidized bed coal combustion at KAST. For his Ph.D., he worked on the low-temperature air oxidation of coal and developed the TG/MS instrument for coal analysis. At Brown University in 1991–1992, Dr. Yum researched pretreatment methods to enhance coal liquefaction yield. Since 1993 he has concentrated on process developments to produce clean synthetic gas from coal, petcoke, and wastes including biomass. Currently, he heads the blue hydrogen project that includes 30 tons/day of petcoke gasification, syngas cleaning, and PSA purification for 2 tons/day of high-purity hydrogen production. During 2013–2018, he was the president of the Korea Association of Waste to Energy (KAWET). He is currently an auditor for the Korea Society of Waste Management and vice president of the Korea DME Association. He has been the chief editor of Korean Industrial Chemistry News for eight years.

With worsening climate change worldwide, the use of coal energy must be reevaluated. Lessons from highly optimized experiences in developed countries, along with innovative statistical tools, are ready to be employed in the coal energy field. Leveraging these resources can enhance efficiency, reduce waste, and promote sustainable practices in coal utilization. This book provides a comprehensive overview of the coal energy industry in the 21st century. It includes six chapters organized into three sections on the past and future of coal energy, application of statistical tools, and application technologies. Chapters address such topics as the pros and cons of coal energy, current clean coal technologies, the application of statistical tools to improve productivity and effectiveness in the coal energy industry, utilization of waste coal fly ash, and more.
