A national conference and workshop on problems of coal freezing were sponsored by EPRI in Cincinnati, Ohio, on March 31 and April 1, 1980. For each of the following topics, the report includes the formal papers, a summary of the workshop discussions, and conclusions: standards for frozen coal tests, application of freeze conditioning additives, transportation problems of frozen coal, consumer perspectives on frozen coal problems, and development of methods for unloading frozen coal. Over 130 persons participated, representing all of the industries concerned with aspects of freezing coal: utilities and other consumers, transportation, mining, and suppliers of freeze-conditioning additives. The conclusions reached included: methods for evaluating freeze-conditioning additives (FCA) and for sampling coal to detect FCA; guidelines for designing and using FCA-application systems, which must be custom designed; and a catalog of specific problems from frozen coal, with a list and evaluation of possible solutions. The report also includes the available records from the 1979 Seminar on Frozen Coal Problems, which was held in St. Louis. Twenty-four papers have been entered individually into EDB.
