Coal is a heterogeneous material containing organic combustible matter and mineral matter. The mineral matter (i.e., impurities) may be broadly divided into two categories; those forming ash and those that contribute sulfur. Such ash-forming and sulfur-containing impurities may be further divided into two groups; (1) those that are chemically a part of the coal and cannot be removed by mechanical processes, and (2) those that are not chemically bound to the coal and can be removed to varying degrees by mechanical means. It is toward this latter category that physical coal cleaning (coal beneficiation, preparation, or washing) is directed. (Color illustrations reproduced in black and white)
