Modular Coal Washing Plant

Coal with a proven reserve of 860 billion tones is the world's most abundant, affordable and widely distributed fossil fuel and a dominant component of the global energy mix. In addition, other industries like iron & steel, cement, fertilizers, chemicals, paper & pulp are also dependent on coal for their process and energy requirements.

Meeting energy demand sustainably

Combining economic growth and sustainable environment is one of the major challenges of today. Given the dominance of coal in global energy framework, development of clean coal technologies is essential to accomplish both coal-driven energy production and reduced environmental footprint. With continuous surge on production rate, there is a constant need for improving coal quality due to following factors:

  • Depletion of higher quality coal seams
  • Mechanized mining increasing impurities in run-of-mine coal
  • High transportation costs
  • Environmental concerns
