April 2013

This month’s issue of World Coal features the Coal Preparation Buyers Guide 2013, our annual survey of the world’s leading OEMs in the fields of coal processing and handling. The issue also includes a range of technical articles on coal preparation issues, from size reduction to dewatering and the increasing popularity of modular preparation plants. The regional report focuses on the US – a market that has had its share of challenges over the past 12 months. Gordon Cope reports on how the industry is reacting, while two articles on safety – one from the NMA, the other from Arch Coal – highlight the industry’s desire to eliminate injuries from the coal mine environment. Finally, our cover article from Joy Global looks at the growth in coal exports from the US and the technology that can help facilitate this.
