CCTI’s legacy technology, Pristine™, is designed to remove moisture and volatile matter (VM), as per client-specified requirements. The factor determining volatile material reduction is boiler design and the need for a certain amount of volatile material to remain in the coal to ensure proper burn. The end product is a cleaner burning, dry coal. CCTI will advance the Pristine™ technology following the commercial launch of the Pristine-M technology in 2015.
