    This report focuses on the study of advanced processing technology of coal. The report consists of four parts, contains 126 pages, including 21 Figures, 13 Tables, conclusions, and 2 appendices.
    Methodologically, the work was carried out in a "desk" research. Numerous sources of information, especially scientific and technical literature: a review of patents, abstracts, articles, and other background information. In addition, we used data of sectoral and regional mass-media, internet-sites of company.
    The introduction gives a brief description of possible technologies for coal processing (adaptive, diversification, transformative technology).
    In the first chapter of the report describes the adaptive technology of coal processing, including: enrichment of coal, briquetting and pelleting, obtaining and use of coal-water slurry fuel for coal and steel industry.
    The second chapter is devoted to the diversification technologies. Shown renewed interest in coal gasification technology, considered the technological aspects of underground coal gasification and its benefits. Also, the prospects for the implementation of the process of production of thermally sanitized solid fuels. Much attention is paid to the possibility of the production of motor fuels by hydrogenation of coal.
    The third chapterof the report presents data on the transforming technologies of coal processing. The list of products of non-fuel purposes, which can be obtained by processing of coal, including: humic fertilizers, mineral wax, lignin-alkaline reagent, carbon adsorbents. This chapter examines the technology of these products and provide a brief description of the market.
    In the fourth chapter of the report presents other possible areas of use of coal. Projects are considered separately SUEK in coal processing.
    Attached is a list of references and links to websites.
