Environmental issues related to the mining and burning of coal are front and centre in todays society. One issue growing in importance is hazardous trace elements found in coal ash that are inadvertently mined and ultimately burned in the process of electricity production. Trace elements such as arsenic, mercury, cadmium and selenium are commonly found in coal ash. Harsh penalties and even rejection of shipments can be the consequences of non-compliance in relation to trace elements in coal.
RTI’s online coal elemental analyser incorporates state-of-the-art technology that accurately detects and measures trace elements in coal, even at minute ppm concentrations.
