Coal Tech 2020

Coal Tech 2020

Coal Tech 2020 is a collaborative research programme launched by the South African coal industry in 1998. The aim of the programme is to carry out research that will assist in the optimal use of South Africa’s coal reserves.

CoalTech 2020 funds a number of research projects in the areas of coal geology, underground and surface mining, coal preparation, and the impact of coal mining on the environment and on water resources, as well as into the human and social issues related to coal mining and the coal industry.

A study aimed at re-evaluating dense-medium cyclone processing of fine coal was motivated to the CoalTech 2020 Steering Committee and they agreed to sponsor the project.
