The report gives results of coal desulfurization experiments to determine the feasibility and advantages of combining gravity separation of coal with chemical desulfurization. The investigations led to the definition of the Gravichem Process, a combination physical/chemical coal desulfurization scheme involving Meyers Process reagent and chemistry. Two coals were investigated: a run-of-the-mine coal sample and a mine-cleaned (MC) coal sample, both from the Martinka Mine, Lower Kittanning seam, and furnished by the American Electric and Power System (AEP Utility). Coal selection was influenced by the 60 million tons of recoverable Martinka Mine coal reserves, by the availability of coal output from a modern, commercial size, physical coal cleaning plant at the same mine, and by AEP's expressed interest in physical and chemical coal desulfurization as a means of solving sulfur pollution problems. MC Martinka coal will be the first coal to be tested at the 8 tons per day Meyers Process Reactor Test Unit.
