New ASTM Standard Will Help Boron Detection in Coal

A new ASTM International standard provides an effective way to determine the presence of boron in coal. The organization?s committee on coal and coke (D05) developed the new standard, which is soon to be published as D8213. As noted in the new standard, ?the possible emission of boron that may be found in coal from coal combustion is an environmental concern.?

According to ASTM International member Kelly Olenyik, the Western Division Manager of Quality & Equipmentat Standard Laboratories, laboratories contracted by producers and consumers could use the new standard. In addition, precision statistics that will eventually be included in the new standard could be used to set limits in contract negotiations.

To purchase standards, contact ASTM International customer relations (tel +1.877.909.ASTM).
