The report examines physical coal cleaning as a control technique for sulfur oxides emissions. It includes an analysis of the availability of low-sulfur coal and of coal cleanable to compliance levels for alternate New Source Performance Standards (NSPS). Various alternatives to physical coal cleaning (such as chemical coal cleaning, coal conversion, and fluidized-bed combustion) are also examined with respect to alternate NSPS. Electric power supply and demand through 1985 are reviewed, as well as the technology, cost, and environmental overviews of physical and chemical coal cleaning techniques. Since the report deals with engineering analyses of available data and several technologies in design stages, references are somewhat limited. Descriptions of the methodologies used and the sources of information are given in lieu of referenced published data in many cases.
