4 © Metso Date Author Title INTERNAL 4 Introduction Coal will continue to occupy the centre stage in India’s energy scenario. Coal accounts for more than 50% of India’s commercial energy. About 75% of the coal in the country is consumed in Power Industry. Coal is abundant in India but primarily high in ash and needs to be washed Coal Washing in India grews at a CAGR of more than 13% over the past 5 years. It is predicted that it will grow at a CAGR of more than 20% in coming 5 to 7 Years. 20% of coal produced is washed in India against a Global average of 50% All Coking Coal produced in India gets washed but very little Thermal Coal is washed. The Trend is shifting to washing of non coking coal due to environmental reasons. Coal Washing increases the cost of coal, but benefits far outweigh the additional cost. Benefits accrued in terms of savings in transportation, O&M cost and Efficiency far exceeds the cost incurred. Technology should be adapted to make Coal washing an integral part of our Energy Chain.

8 © Metso 8 Technological Advancements in a. Slurry Pumping 1.Pump Metallurgy has improved over the years Cast IronNi Hard27% Chrome 2. Plants are now Pump Fed instead of Gravity Fed resulting in lower fixed and operating costs 3. Large Capacity Pumps > 5000 m3/h available a. Single large module in place of many smaller ones. b. Smaller foot print of the plant c. Pumping cost reduced. d. Reduced Capex/Opex. 4.Local Manufacturing by International Companies has lowered the Capex. Pumping Classification Gravity Separation Flotation Thickening Mechanical Dewatering INPUT OUTPUT 24 inch pump can handle >5000 m3/hr flow

9 © Metso 9 Technological Advancements in b. Classification - Multiflo Banana 1. Multiflo Screens 1.Are becoming Popular for Classification 2.Are becoming popular for Drain & Rinse 3.Replace Sieve Bend 4.Have smaller footprint for same capacity 5.Have large capacity and help in designing high capacity single module. 6.Largest width > 4m,length > 8m ( 4.2x8.5) 7.70% more capacity than sievebend- screen combination 8.Are available in Single or double deck.
