The article considers the possibility of modernization of the coal preparation plants (CPP) based on the processing of preparation waste using pyrolysis plants for the thermal destruction of high-ash coals and sludge to produce synthetic gas, liquid fuel, heat and electricity used to expand the range of secondary raw materials, products and consumer goods.

Based on the analysis of the chemical composition, physical properties of preparation waste, ash of power plants and rocks, a method of their processing with the production of fuel briquettes, fertilizers, ceramics and refractories and the use of synthetic gases obtained is proposed, which allows solving most of the environmental safety problems of coal preparation plants.

The economic and environmental effect is achieved by processing and disposal of coal preparation waste, while temporary and permanent waste storage warehouses are eliminated, environmental pollution is reduced, environmental payments are reduced, and the production of consumer goods is increased.
