GCA identified 165 physical coal cleaning plants with a raw coal capacity of 500 tons/hr or greater. Of these 165 plants, additional information on the sulfur and ash content of the raw and prepared coals was collected for 49 coal preparation plants. Calculations were performed to determine the percent sulfur and ash reduction due to physical coal cleaning processes. The reduction in sulfur content varied from 0 to 57 percent by weight while the reduction in ash content varied from 10 to 85 percent by weight. These values are well within the range of results previously reported in the literature.
