Special Issue Introduction

Coal and coal-series resources play a vital role in supporting economic development as essential materials. They contain not only organic carbon components but also various strategic metals, non-metallic minerals, and other valuable constituents. Additionally, these resources possess dual properties, serving as both an energy source and raw materials. Efficient separation and processing are crucial steps in realizing clean and efficient utilization of these resources. Through these processes, the accurate separation of valuable components from low-value elements or impurities can be accomplished. This promotes the evolution of coal and coal-series resources toward greener, low-carbon, and more efficient pathways, signifying great significance in attaining the goal of “carbon peak and carbon neutrality”.

This Special Issue aims to discuss the advances of coal and coal-series resources, including their separation, processing, recovery, and clean and efficient utilization. We enthusiastically invite submissions of research, review, communication, and perspective papers on this pivotal topic.
