Successful commissioning of waste coal recovery process

21-Jan-2014 - Torftech is pleased to announce the successful commissioning of a coal slimes recovery plant for Coalstar Pty at EVRAZ (Highveld Steel) in South Africa. A 1m diameter TORBED unit is used to flash dry 2 t/h of ultra-fine coal from slimes. This new process has the ability to be scaled to turn millions of tonnes of hitherto waste and valueless coal into a valuable resource for pulverised fuel (PF) combustion processes without any need for milling the coal feed. This is a major advance in the capability to reduce CO2 emissions from heavy industrial plant through reduction of uncontrolled losses to the environment and removal of need to mill with attendant power consumption.
