The report presents results of a study of the current level of coal cleaning activity in the United States. In 1983, the U.S. Department of Energy's Energy Information Administration (EIA) expanded coal data collection activities to include information on the extent and type of coal preparation conducted in each coal-producing region. The additional information included data on raw coal input to coal cleaning plants, clean coal output, quality characteristics of the prepared coal, and end-use markets of both raw and prepared coal. These data, in combination with other EIA data, provide information on the extent and type of coal cleaning activity in each major coal-producing state or region. The impat on coal preparation of differences in mining methods and requirements of the various end-use markets also is discussed. Estimates were developed of SO2 emission reduction by current mechanical cleaning plants based on clean coal quality characteristics reported to EIA and bed/county raw coal quality estimated from the EIA/U.S. Bureau of Mines analytical file.
