This is the final report of a project whose aim was to define an integrated beneficiation and slurrification process for the recovery and utilization of low quality coals, including washery wastes, as concentrated coal-water slurries. In fact, due to their high ash and sulphur content, these types of coals cannot be transported economically and their utilization is restricted to mine-mouth power generation. The project also aimed to compare, for washery wastes and the fine fraction of high ash coal, the performances of an innovative selective agglomeration process with those obtained by conventional flotation process.
