Clean Coal Technologies Inc., an emerging cleaner-energy company using patented technology to convert raw coal into a cleaner burning and more efficient fuel, has announced that the latest tests analysed by the Independent Standard laboratory have been very successful.
"Our latest test results, carried out on 2 February 2016, reduced the moisture content of the feed coal from 26.93% to ~4.71% in the stabilised coal. Alongside the previous testing results, we can confidently say that the moisture level of the stabilised coal can be reduced to levels desired by the end customer. Simply put, we have completely validated the dehydration process section of the Pristine M Technology," explained President and CEO, Robin Eves.
"The corresponding increase in heating value of the coal was almost 2000 Btu/lb., from 8767 Btu/lb. in the feed coal to 10 744 Btu/lb. in the stabilised coal. The results also showed no degradation of the coal during the process. These are phenomenal results this early in the commissioning process," added Eves. "We have validated our ability to address the volatiles whilst increasing the BTU value of the final product. This also validates the Pristine Technology and shows, beyond doubt, that we can produce a cleaner, more energy efficient fuel from the lower ranked coals."
"Whereas these results exceeded our expectations we will continue to run further tests and gather additional data over the coming weeks. These results will act as a benchmark for our continued testing," commented Aiden Neary, COO. "We have already identified process improvements that, when implemented, will lead to further optimisation of the end coal. These results serve as evidence of just how powerful this technology is and provides us the ability to move to commercialisation on an expedited basis as we work to provide a commercial and economically viable solution to the global Coal and Power Industry."
Eves concluded: "CCTI and their patent and patent pending technologies have taken an enormous step towards commercialising their technology and the global negotiations will now be validated by the exceptional performance of their technology at the AES coal-fired Utility at Shady Point with the confident knowledge that results can only improve from here. These are very exciting times for our company, our investors and shareholders.”
