The paper describes a database that merges the U.S. Demonstrated Reserve Base (DRB) with estimates of the SO2 reduction attainable through physical coal cleaning of the DRB coals. The DRB is subdivided into roughly 38,000 separate reserve blocks, each of which is characterized as to its raw quality and SO2 reduction potential under various physical coal cleaning scenarios. The methodology and data sources used in developing the database are presented. The paper focuses on the coal cleaning model used to develop the SO2 reduction and the methodology used to merge these estimates with the DRB. State-level potential SO2 reduction and cost estimates obtained by processing the database are presented.
