Low-rank coals require a separate drying step as a part of the coal preparation, unlike high-rank coals. This is because low-rank coals typically have moisture content in the range of 25–60%. There are also different types of moisture that exist in coal. Table 2.4 lists the different types of moisture and their removal methods.

The nonionic surfactants included an ethoxylated octyl phenol and several polypropylene-polyethylene block copolymers, and the anionic surfactant was a dioctyl sulfosuccinate. All of the surfactants improved the yield significantly, but the influence on grade was complex.To ...
Low Rank Coal Low-rank coal is defined as consisting of a gross caloric value (e.g. heating value) of less than 24 MJ/kg (moist, ash-free basis) and mean vitrinite reflectance as less than 0.6%. From: Coal and Coalbed Gas, 2014 Related terms: Coal Rank
Low rank coal and lignite upgrading is technically possible for many fuels and the upgrading can increase the value of a lignite or coal and provide monetisation pathways. The nature of the upgraded fuel must be well understood in terms of its suitability for specific coal-to-electricity conversion technologies. If the total fuel costs are favourable, and the fuel is compatible with the conversion …

Two low-rank coals, a sub-bituminous coal (BA) and a lignite (LY), were treated by hot water extraction (HWE) and hydrothermal treatment (HTT), and the environmental impacts of water-soluble matters eluted from coal by the HWE and HTT processes were evaluated in terms of TOC, mutagenicity, and the acute toxicity against freshwater organisms. When HWE was performed at 80°C, the degree of TOC ...
