Some high-sulfur lignites were extracted with aqueous alkaline solution obtained from the water-soluble fraction of tea waste ash. High-sulfur removal from lignites was possible by this method. The effects of temperature, the amount of tea waste ash used, extraction time, and stirring speed were studied in the ranges 5-35 g, 350-550 K, 0.042-1.7 MPa, 15-60 min, and 300-600 rev/min, respectively. The extents of pyritic and organic sulfur removal were investigated.
