Coalview has announced plans to build a fine coal processing plant in Eastern Pennsylvania.
The processing facility will consist of a full rail and truck load-out, along with a fine coal recovery (FCR) plant built to process approximately 300,000 tons per year.
The new Coalview facility will produce various sizes of anthracite product from fine anthracite in partnership with current producers. Anthracite contains more fixed carbon than any other type of coal with the least amount of ash and volatile matter. The product can be used as a domestic fuel product, or for use in steam-electric power generation, the company says.
Coalview expects to invest about $50 million on the facility.
The Eastern Pennsylvania location offers numerous advantages because of the number of anthracite producers, says David Henry, president of Coalview Recovery Group. Additionally, Pennsylvania is one of the highest-ranked states for mining expertise in the US, Henry says.
In March, Coalview acquired all of the assets of KeLa Energy. KeLa’s patent portfolio and other assets will enable Coalview to custom blend fuel products for customer’s specific requests, the companies said.
