Coal Dust Suppression
Patented dust control and anti-oxidant solutions from mine to power plant
CoalPlus* is an engineering blend of anti-oxidants, binders and foam suppression technology designed to mitigate unique handling issues associated with use of sub-bituminous coals and other reactive solid fuels. CoalPlus treatment is typically applied at mine sites to reap maximum benefit from mine loadout to power plant delivery.
Veolia’s CoalPlus* Treatment Program
Veolia has developed a unique program of patented anti-oxidants, dust control binders and high-performance foam application systems to “body feed” the anti-oxidants and binders to PRB and other subbituminous coals at the mine site – prior to loading into the rail cars or barges.
Veolia’s CoalPlus technology retards the oxidation and weathering of low rank coals, which in turn reduces hot spots, smoker and spontaneous combustion at mines, coal terminals and at generating stations.
