A coal preparation plant (CPP) is a facility that washes coal of soil and rock, preparing it for transport to market. A CPP may also be called a coal handling and preparation plant (CHPP), prep plant, tipple, or wash plant.
The more of this waste material that can be removed from coal, the greater its market value and the lower its transportation costs.

“In those days, the blag slag, the waste of the coal pits, had only begun to cover the side of our hill. Not enough to mar the countryside nor blacken the beauty of our village. For the colliery had only begun to poke its skinny black fingers between the green.”
—Philip Dunne (19081992)
“Living each day as a preparation for the next is an exciting way to live. Looking forward to something is much more fun than looking back at somethingand much more constructive. If we can prepare ourselves so that we never have to think, Oh, if I had only known, if I had only been ready, our lives can really be the great adventure we so passionately want them to be.”
—Hortense Odlum (1892?)
