by steve fiscor, editor, and jennifer jensen, associate editor

The Coal Preparation Society of America (CPSA) has been working feverishly to organize Coal Processing Technology 2018 (CoalProTec 2018). This year’s must-attend event for prep plant operators as well as professionals involved in other aspects of coal handling includes three days of workshops and presentations taking place at the Lexington Convention Center, in Lexington, Kentucky, April 23-25.

Being centrally located between the Illinois Basin and Appalachian coalfields, most agree that Lexington is a great venue, especially in the spring. The CPSA has brought the elite in coal processing expertise together with equipment, technology and service suppliers to network in a biennial format. A day of educational workshops will provide some background for those wishing to reinforce principles operators may be overlooking in day-to-day operations. The speakers in the keynote session will deliver valuable insight as to the macroeconomic and political forces shaping the U.S. coal industry. Several sessions follow with technical presentations on new plant construction and modifications, coal cleaning and advanced coal byproducts.
