Coal samples from the Saoner coal mines situated near Nagpur city, MS, India were analysed for the determination and speciation of sulphur. The pyretic, sulphate and organic form percentages of sulphur were determined. Most of the coal samples were found to contain high percentage of pyretic sulphur. The approximate emission of sulphur in the environment of the study area is modeled on year basis. The results indicated that environmental problems i.e. acid rain may be noticed in the study area in near future, if some precautionary steps are not taken to reduce the sulphur content of these coal prior to its utilization.
