Coal beneficiation - Feedstock quality is key in
raising coal-fired power station performance. Our next webinar on Wednesday 19 April
at midday (UK time) presented by Dr Ian Reid, examines technical developments in coal beneficiation covering dense-media and dry coal treatment, and upgrading various technologies.
Amid a global trend to use low quality, inexpensive coal, it is now recognised that feedstock quality is a key element of a future power strategy to raise power station performance and meet environmental legislation. Preparing feedstock in order to remove inert matter and reduce contaminants can benefit every aspect of a coal plant operation. This webinar examines technical developments in coal beneficiation covering dense-media and dry coal treatment, and upgrading technologies such as coal refining, digestion, oxidation, fuel blending and biomass substitution.
