The report gives a background against which requirements for further developments of coal cleaning technology and control techniques for the associated pollutants can be established, as part of a review of U.S. coal cleaning process technologies and related technologies for environmental control. It summarizes the state of the art of physical coal cleaning. It summarizes the status of coal cleaning technology with respect to cost, energy efficiency, applicability, extent of development, and commercialization prospects. It describes the manner in which various physical coal cleaning operations are combined to produce systems capable of producing minimum, intermediate, and maximum levels of coal cleaning. It describes the physical and chemical properties of coal, and cites the pertinent literature on washability of many U.S. coals. It gives technological descriptions of coal cleaning processes. It identifies potential pollutants evolved from these processes and methods used for their control.
