Chemical Leaching of High-Ash Indian Coals for Production

It is difficult to reduce the ash content in Indian coals below a certain level by conventional physical beneficiation techniques due to their poor washability characteristics. In the present work, the effect of aqueous alkali leaching at elevated temperature, followed by acid washing on the removal of mineral matter, was evaluated for different captive coals of Tata Steel.

Heavy metals and coal SourceWatch

Coal Ash. Burning coal produces airborne compounds, known as fly ash and bottom ash (collectively referred to as coal ash), which can contain large quantities of heavy metals that settle or wash out of the atmosphere into oceans, streams, and land. The amount of fly ash is going up in 2006, coal plants in the United States produced almost 72 million tons, up 50 percent since 1993.

Burning High Ash Content Coal Problems and Remedies

High ash content in the will reduce the thermal efficiency of the coal. The ash content interfere with the combustion of coal and reduces the temperature of the combustion zone. High ash content in coal results in the increase in cost for coal cleaning; Higher ash content coal burns slow compared with low ash content coal under identical

Coal Ash (Coal Combustion Residuals, or CCR) US EPA

Coal combustion residuals, commonly known as coal ash, are created when coal is burned by power plants to produce electricity. Coal ash is one of the largest types of industrial waste generated in the United States. In 2012, 470 coal-fired electric utilities generated about 110 million tons of coal

Low Ash Metallurgical Coke (LAM Coke/MET Coke) is solid carbonaceous material obtained from destructive distillation of low ash, low sulphur Bituminous coal. Coke is formed when the coal is heated in the absence of air. The residue obtained from the carbonization of a non-coking coal such as sub Bituminous coal.

In addition, Indian coals have a high level of inherent ash which can influence the behaviour of some NOx control systems, and so affect the selection process. Primary measures for NOx control from coal-fired power plants include low NOx burners (LNBs), overfire air systems (OFA), fuel reburning, flue gas recirculation, fuel biasing, low excess

ABSTRACTThe study investigates the Hardgrove Grindability Index (HGI) values for binary blends of high-ash Indian coals and low-ash imported coals. The coals were selected in such a way that their grindability values were not closely spaced for studying the effect of blending in the HGI of coal blends.
