The froth flotation is the most promising and versatile process for commercial upgradation of coal fine slimes. The alternative processes are also under development for the replacement of flotation processes where suitable.

Flotation Froth - an overview ScienceDirect Topics

Since froth flotation (and oil agglomeration) relies on the surface properties of coal in separating particles, coal petrology plays an important role in the process. Arnold and Aplan (1989) reported a number of studies which examined maceral partitioning or lithotype partitioning, generally without consideration of the maceral association.

Froth flotation is a physico-chemical separation process. Separation is principally based on differences in surface hydrophobicity. However, particle size and density have a significant impact. Initial flotation patent and application was developed for graphite by the Bessel brothers (1877). Similar to graphite, coal is naturally hydrophobic.

Froth flotation - Wikipedia

Froth flotation is a process for selectively separating hydrophobic materials from hydrophilic.This is used in mineral processing, paper recycling and waste-water treatment industries. Historically this was first used in the mining industry, where it was one of the great enabling technologies of the 20th century.
