Hi everyone.Please help. I have a lot of coal and anthracite grit / powder left over after emptying the bags. Is there anyway I can use the grit / powder or is there a way I can compress it to use in my indoor fireplace?

I wonder if you could use starch as a binder so it would burn.

And if you press really hard you get diamonds.

Aerosolized coal dust is quite explosive, so be careful.
