Explanation:
Me da la sensación de que se refiere a dar golpecitos, "tapping", pero siendo un título de un libro el tema del mismo puede tener que ver, o no.
También puede ser "rozando el carbón"...
En realidad habría muchas formas de decirlo, siempre que se le de el sentido de "un toque ligero".
Suerte.

golpecitos de carbon


Explanation:
Hope this helps! I'm assuming this is the context it was meant to convey. If by tapping they mean tapping into the resources I'd say
exploitacion de carbon. In any case, suerte!

Avivando el carbón


Explanation:
If it's the title of a novel or something maybe this will do. According to the literal meaning which is "dar golpecitos al carbón" I deduced this translation, I mean, if you give "golpecitos al carbón" it must be for a reason, maybe then that reason is to make it burn or sth.

Hope this helps.
