Depending on the raw specification of the coal, GEO-COAL will be able to determine the optimum upgrading means and deliver the best suited product of each coal type considering the bulk density, energy value and economic value.
“GEO-COAL is able to change the core characteristics of the coal transforming a brown coal into a black coal”
“GEO-COAL products can be tailored to specific customer needs”
- HIGHER QUALITY COAL :
50% to 100% increased energy content from initial low rank coal feedstock.
- INCREASES PROFIT MARGINS :
Upgraded coal fetches a significantly higher selling price, thus generating higher profit margins and increased market opportunities for coal producers.
- MORE ECO-FRIENDLY :
GEO-COAL products maintain environmental properties of low rank coal, i.e. lower sulphur and ash content.
- INCREASED ENERGY SUPPLY :
GEO-COAL taps on the potential of stranded coal resources, e.g. 70% untapped coal resources in Indonesia alone.
- SIMPLE AND ECONOMICAL :
GEO-COAL requires lower capital and operating expenditures than existing technologies. GEO-COAL plants require short installation times, and the upgrading process avoids the need for briquetting.
- INCREASED PERFOMANCE AT POWER PLANTS :
Higher heating value of the coal enables more efficiency and utilization during combustion leading to higher power outputs.
- VERSATILE :
GEO-COAL can be used for wide range of high moisture, low calorific value coals from different coal mines around the world, as well as for other organic materials such as bamboo, wood and even wastes.
- ENCHANCED TRANSPORT EFFICIENCY:
upgraded coal’s reduced moisture content saves extensive transportation and handling costs, since unnecessary volume in the from of water mass need be carried.
- REDUCED RISK OF SPONTANEOUS COMBUSTION :
Checimal and physical properties of the upgraded coal are significantly more stable than before (initial low rank coal feed).
