What is Coal Beneficiation?

  • Coal beneficiation is a process by which the quality of raw coal is improved by either reducing the extraneous matter that gets extracted along with the mined coal or reducing the associated ash or both.

 

United in Science 2021

 

Two basic processes of beneficiation:

  • Dry-deshaling: non-coal or shaly-coal is removed without using any liquid media.
  • Wet process: Coal is crushed to smaller size and put in a liquid media of adjustable specific gravity to separate the lighter coal (low ash) from heavier coal (high ash). The rejects from wet process also contain carbonaceous matter.
