The potential of coal wastes in South Africa - SAIMM

40% fixed carbon, and less than 40% ash. It is clearly a fairly high rank material approaching anthracite. Discussion The typical raw coal from most South African collieries has about 25–35% ash, 22–24% volatile matter, and 44–50% fixed carbon. In contrast, the discard coal typically has well over 40% ash, 15–25% volatile matter and <35% fixed carbon. It must, therefore, be recognised ...
