Coal is the world's most abundant fossil fuel that has been burned for centuries as a source of heat and energy. For more than 100 years, coals have been shipped in bulk by ships. It is expected that the global coal consumption will grow by more than 40 percent between 2001 and 2025. Today, coal is shipped in bulk every year across the oceans of the world. While most of these shipments are made without incident, there has been a number of serious casualties, which resulted in not only in loss of ship, but also in loss of life. The most important hazards regarding is self-heating. The incident involving coal carbons has been seriously problematic for centuries. It was a much-feared danger in the days of wooden boat ships and has continued since the advent of modern ships.
