This book is the first monograph on the topic of coal desulfurization to be published in a quarter-century. The previous standard book was Robert Meyers’ Coal Desulfurization , published in 1977. A monograph published in 1982, Fundamentals of Coal Beneficiation and Utilization by S.C. Tsai, treated desulfurization in the broader context of coal beneficiation. Therefore the present volume indeed represents a new look at this field. The book begins with a review of the analytical procedures for determining sulfur in coal, as well as the forms of sulfur: pyritic, organic, and sulfatic. Many sophisticated instrumental methods are mentioned, including, among others, Mössbauer and Auger spectroscopy. A chapter is also devoted to the discussion of the strategies for precombustion and postcombustion desulfurization. The heart of the book, some eleven chapters, covers the entire range of coal desulfurization processes. These include the various physical methods, such as heavy-media and gravity separations, flotation, flocculation and agglomeration, and magnetic and electrical methods. These physical methods receive most of the attention—about eight chapters—which is not unreasonable given their dominance of these processes in present-day desulfurization. Microbial and chemical desulfurization processes are also covered, in one chapter each. This book has several strengths. First,
