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
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.
