  • Process for removing pyritic sulfur from bituminous coals

    Process for removing pyritic sulfur from bituminous coals

    A process is provided for removing pyritic sulfur and lowering ash content of bituminous coals by grinding the feed coal, subjecting it to micro-agglomeration with a bridging liquid containing heavy oil, separating the microagglomerates and separating them to a water wash to remove suspended pyritic sulfur. In one embodiment the coal is ...

    Method for removal of sulfur from coal Kennecott Copper

    1. In addition, the sulfur removal step is carried out by washing the coal with kerosene to remove sulfur. An Illinois No. 6 coal containing 2.62 percent by weight pyritic sulfur has been converted to a coal containing 0.09 percent by weight pyritic sulfur with approximately 9 percent of the pyritic sulfur being converted to elemental sulfur.

  • Standard test methods for sulfur in ash from coal and coke

    Standard test methods for sulfur in ash from coal and coke

    Journal Article. Three alternative methods for the determination of total sulfur in samples of coal and coke are: Eschka Method, Bomb Washing Method, and High-Temperature Combustion Method. In the Eschka method, a weighed sample and the Eschka mixture (2 parts of light calcined MgO and 1 part of anhydrous Na/sub 2/CO/sub 3/) are ignited ...

  • Process for reducing the sulfur content of coal SIMPSON

    Process for reducing the sulfur content of coal SIMPSON

    A sample of New Mexico fuschia coal containing 6.4% total sulfur was subjected to the grinding-extraction procedures of Example 1. The sulfur content of the extracted coal was 2.5%, virtually all of which was pyritic sulfur. The extracted coal was mixed with a stoiciometric quantity of aluminum chloride, based on the pyrite content of the coal.

  • Sulfur Forms Coal Analysis Kentucky Geological Survey

    Sulfur Forms Coal Analysis Kentucky Geological Survey

    Sulfur Forms. Three forms of sulfur occur in coal: (1) organic, (2) inorganic, and (3) elemental. Understanding the forms of sulfur in a coal is important because coal preparation can reduce the inorganic (pyritic and sulfate) sulfur in coal, but not the organically bound sulfur in coal.

  • Water pollution from coal Global Energy Monitor

    Water pollution from coal Global Energy Monitor

    Acid mine drainage (AMD) refers to the outflow of acidic water from coal or metal mines, often abandoned ones where ore- or coal mining activities have exposed rocks containing the sulphur-bearing mineral pyrite. Pyrite reacts with air and water to form sulphuric acid and dissolved iron, and as water washes through mines, this compound forms a dilute acid, which can wash into nearby rivers …

    10 Some Methods of Reducing Sulfur Oxides from Power

    In the meantime some of the available low sulfur coal is being used at utility plants which would be able to meet the national emission standards using coals with a higher sulfur content than they are now using. In January 1974, the Bureau of Mines 2 estimated a shortage of low sulfur coal of 243 million tons in 1975 and 275 million tons in 1980.

    US3768988A Removal of pyritic sulfur from coal using

    Finely divided coal or solid coal derivatives containing pyrite are reacted with a ferric ion solution; FeCl3 is particularly suitable. The ferric ion is reduced to ferrous ion and free sulfur is formed. The solution is then filtered from the coal which is then washed and heat dried under low pressure. Most of the free sulfur is volatized from the coal due to the heat drying; additional free ...

    Sulfur pollution from coal and gas is extreme but new

    Oct 23, 2019 In China, sulfur dioxide emissions primarily from coal burning are thought to contribute to more than 230,000 deaths every year with an economic cost of over $100 billion. In the next 20 years ...

    Glossary U.S. Energy Information Administration EIA

    The term is also used to classify coal according to heat and sulfur content. See Coal grade. Coal Washing: The treatment of coal to remove waste material such as: Dense (heavy) medium processes use a thick solution, usually a mixture of magnetite and water, to separate coal from impurities, such as sulfur, ash, and mercury, by gravity separation.

    washing the coal containing sulfur

    Coal washing Coal preparation Coal washing plant pcocess. Apr 10, 2019 Coal washing can remove 50%-80% of ash and 30%-40% of total sulfur (or 60%~80% of inorganic sulfur) in coal. Burning coal can effectively reduce soot, SO2 and NOx. Emissions, washing 100 million tons of thermal coal can generally reduce 600,000 to

  • How to Remove Sulphur from Coal

    How to Remove Sulphur from Coal

    Sep 01, 2017 The process effectively removed over 95 percent of the pyritic sulfur in the coal. Reclamation of pyritic sulfur would eliminate stream pollution by acid water drainage and other environmental problems.

    Sulfur removal by fine coal cleaning processes ScienceDirect

    Oct 01, 1997 This is due to two reasons: Physical separation methods can remove only pyrite from coal; the organic sulfur is chemically bound to the coal matrix. Physical desulfurization appears to concentrate organic sulfur in the clean coal, merely by removing mineral matter. Froth flotation is inefficient in removing pyrite from the coal.

    Coal Cleaning an overview ScienceDirect Topics

    Coal cleaning is used to remove ash and pyritic sulfur in coal [26,27]. Mercury that coexisted as pyrite can be removed by coal cleaning before combustion. Average mercury reduction by coal cleaning is estimated to be 20%–37% [28]. However, waste water for coal cleaning contains high-concentration mercury, which is classified as a hazardous waste.

  • What is the best industrial method to eliminate Sulphur

    What is the best industrial method to eliminate Sulphur

    Inorganic sulphur, in the form of pyrite (FeS2), can be removed from coal relatively easily simply by washing the coal. This method can result in a reduction of 10 - 50% of total sulphur content.
