India has vast coal resources all over the country; however, the presence of high ash content makes them invulnerable for industrial usage. To compensate for the rapid depletion of high-quality coking coals and to compensate for the demand for coal in iron and steel sectors, coal cleaning or beneficiation and blending techniques have come into limelight for the usage of low-quality coal. In this paper, laboratory-scale experiments were performed on the utilization of Indian high ash non-coking coal (NCC) and imported semi-coking coal (SCC) for the coke preparation. At first, washability characteristics of Indian high ash coal were investigated by using jigging, spiral concentration, and sink and float density separation methods. The optimum cut-off density NCC and SCC coals were blended and sent for the caking properties analysis. Proximate and ultimate analysis, vitrinite reflectance, crucible swelling number, and caking index or roga index have been taken as the measure for the caking ability of coal blends.
