High-moisture coals lead to ignition difficulties and reduced thermal efficiency. A method of drying is described which is integrated into the power plant, yielding improved efficiency. Cost estimates suggest that the present system is highly advantageous. Development of the new system will be straightforward. Recovery of distilled water is a bonus.
