The report gives results of an evaluation of the economics of an oil-agglomeration process (with and without an oil recovery system) for recovering coal fines from a fine refuse stream of 105 ton/hr from a coal preparation plant. The two base case processes studied are oil-agglomeration processes: in one, heptane is used and recovered; and in the other, fuel oil is used and blended with the product. The economics for both processes were estimated with and without a pond credit (savings in coal preparation plant investment resulting from the smaller waste disposal pond needed for the oil-agglomeration process).
