Coal Preparation Society of America
Message from the President
Welcome to the Coal Preparation Society of America webpage. This is the place to stay up-to-date with the happenings of CPSA and a place for CPSA to stay in touch with you. If you have not visited this site before, please take a few minutes and look around.
All of us in the industry understand there is a “War on Coal” here in the United States. The current administration’s stance toward hard-working Americans is unprecedented. But on the bright side, coal is poised to become the dominant fuel worldwide by the year 2020, overtaking oil, assuming certain opponents of the industry don’t get in the way. There can be and should be a bright future for coal. As always the winner should be the low-cost energy producer. This is where CPSA and its members play such a vital role.
As you have learned, or will learn by reading the CPSA Journal and attending the CPSA short course, nowhere in the coal industry can money be recovered or lost faster than in the coal preparation plant. For the coal preparation professional, CPSA should be the first stop on your journey to learning how to be the best coal preparation professional you can be. Read the CPSA Journal, attend the CPSA sponsored short courses, and attend the technical sessions and workshops at Coal Prep in Lexington. Above all, pass your knowledge on and encourage other coal preparation professionals to join CPSA.
CPSA exists to serve its members. The Board and other volunteer staff are donating their time and talents to help keep CPSA members informed and as up-to-date as possible. The coal industry needs leaders. Leaders are not born, they are built. Let CPSA help build your knowledge. The technical sessions at Coal Prep, articles in the CPSA Journal, and CPSA Coal Prep 101 short courses are being provided to you by professionals in the industry who desire to pass along the knowledge they have gained through experience and study.
I hope to see you at a CPSA-sponsored event in the near future. Thank you in advance for your support of CPSA and its goals.
