Bituminous coal is the most common coal: bituminous coal and subbituminous coal represent (cumulatively) more than 90% of all the coal consumed in the United States. When burned, bituminous coal produces a high, white flame. Bituminous coal includes two subtypes: thermal and metallurgical. Thermal coal is sometimes called steam coal because it is used to fire power plants that produce steam for electricity and industrial uses. Locomotive trains that run on steam may also be fueled with bit coal (bituminous coal).
