CoalTek’s technology reduces moisture content in a broad range of coals, optimizing plant efficiency and delivering environmental integrity. The CoalTek process was developed, tested, and proven over eight years by Dr. Jerry Weinberg, the company’s co-founder, along with chief geologist Neil Ginther. CoalTek opened its first commercial processing facility in Calvert City, Kentucky in 2006. The plant’s initial capacity of 120,000 tons/yr will be expanded in the future, and there are also plans to build additional facilities, to meet the growing demand for clean coal.
