The report gives results of a statistical analysis of the sulfur content and heating value data for 53 different coal-source/cleaning-plant combinations, both to document the operational effectiveness of commercial coal cleaning plants in reducing sulfur and enhancing heating value, and to define the effect of physical coal cleaning on sulfur variability. Cleaning plants, for which matched pairs of feed and product coal data were available, showed 24-50% reductions (from feed to product) in the mean lb/SO2 million Btu. These empirical data are consistent with the calculated performance of hypothetical coal cleaning plants.
