New effort to increase coal production announced

agues have already made strides in this research arena in the past 20 years leading to the DOEs decision to fund CAST. The best known is the Microcel™ technology, used widely in both the coal and mineral industries to improve recovery rates. The technology is currently marketed by SVEDALA, the worlds largest mining equipment supplier.

Other technologies developed at Virginia Tech include a flotation reagent for the processing of kaolin clay, an optical sensor for coal analysis, and a hydrosizer for the recovery of coarse phosphate and coal. Most recently, Yoon and the members of his research center developed novel technologies, now close to commercialization, that separate water from the surface fine particles that are close to commercialization.

Yoon has served as the director of the Center for Coal and Mineral Processing at Virginia Tech since 1988. CAST will now replace that center.

Congressman Rick Boucher, representing southwest Virginia, was instrumental in securing both of these awards, as well as Alexandria Congressman James Moran and Senator John Warner.

"I am extremely pleased that the U.S. Department of Energy has awarded federal funding to CAST. Virginia Tech and West Virginia University have accumulated a great deal of expertise in the areas of separation science and technology, particularly as applied to energy and environmental research. The joint effort between the two institutions is a valuable partnership which will advance the effort to develop commercially viable processes to increase coal energy efficiency through the recovery of previously unrecoverable fine coal particles," Boucher stated.
