The report assembles and assesses technical and economic information on chemical coal cleaning processes. Sufficient data was located to evaluate 11 processes in detail. It was found that chemical coal cleaning processes can remove up to 99% of the pyritic sulfur and 40% of the organic sulfur, resulting in total sulfur removals of 53 to 77%. This performance can be achieved with heat value recoveries of 57 to 96%. Processes which remove only pyritic sulfur were generally judged to have the highest probabilities of success. Of techniques which remove both pyritic and organic sulfur, the ERDA and GE microwave processes were judged to have the highest probabilities of sucess.
