Peat (/ p iː t /), sometimes known as turf (/ t ɜːr f /), is an accumulation of partially decayed vegetation or organic is unique to natural areas called peatlands, bogs, mires, moors, or muskegs.

The peatland ecosystem covers million square kilometres and is the most efficient carbon sink on the planet, because peatland plants capture CO 2 naturally released from the peat.

As the smoky flavour is a key component of many whiskies, these days peat is used simply as a flavouring agent, with controlled burning during the early stages of kilning. of fuel peat by compressing peat into briquettes in factories. Lastly, when oil was in short supply during the Second World War, peat coke was produced in large quantities.

This was used as motor fuel by converting it into gas in generators mounted on vehicles. Peat, an organic fuel consisting of spongy material formed by the partial decomposition of organic matter, primarily plant material, in wetlands.

The formation of peat is the first step in the formation of coal. Peat is only a minor contributor to the world energy supply. ‘Other garden peat can contain chemicals that can harm discus fish so just be careful.’ ‘Place the seeds in a plastic bag with a mixture of sand and peat or other suitable growing mix.’ ‘An energy tax would penalise industries which use energy based on fossil fuel, including oil, coal and peat.’.

Since the s, the use of peat as a home fuel has dropped off, but it’s now a commodity prized by certain scotch makers looking for a particular, powerful flavor profile. Peat used to be cut. Peat is the "forgotten fossil fuel."While oil, coal, and natural gas are exported around the world, few outside northern Europe are aware of this energy source.

In certain circumstances, peat can be an early stage in coal formation. Most of the time, however, peat is a unique material. Peat forms in bogs. Bogs are a type of wetland with a high acid content.

(Thomas Hooker) Leavitt. Abstract. Mode of access: Internet. Peat Coke a solid product of the thermal processing of peat. Peat coke may be produced by low-temperature coking, semicok-ing at a final temperature of °–°C, medium-temperature coking at °–°C, or coking at °–°C. High-quality peat with a low ash content is used as the raw material, and continuous furnaces with internal or.

Peat, or turf, is an accumulation of partially decayed forms in wetland bogs, moors, mires, and swamps. Formation. Peat forms when plant material, usually in marshy areas, is inhibited from decaying fully by acidic and anaerobic conditions. It is composed mainly of marshland vegetation: trees, grasses, fungi, as well as other types of organic remains, such as insects, and.
