Handbook of Coal Analysis

Handbook of Coal Analysis Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

All the guidance needed to test coal and analyze the results

With the skyrocketing costs of most fuel sources, government, industry, and consumers are taking a greater interest in coal, an abundant and inexpensive alternative, which has been made more environmentally friendly through new technology. Published in response to this renewed interest, Handbook of Coal Analysis provides readers with everything they need to know about testing and analyzing coal. Moreover, it explains the meaning of test results and how these results can predict coal behavior and its corresponding environmental impact during use.

The thorough coverage of coal analysis includes:

  • Detailed presentation of necessary standard tests and procedures
  • Explanation of coal behavior relative to its usage alongside the corresponding environmental issues
  • Coverage of nomenclature, terminology, sampling, and accuracy and precision of analysis
  • Step-by-step test method protocols for proximate analysis, ultimate analysis, mineral matter, physical and electrical properties, thermal properties, mechanical properties, spectroscopic properties, and solvent properties
  • Emphasis on relevant American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) standards and test methods, including corresponding International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and British Standards Institution (BSI) test method numbers

To assist readers in understanding the material, a glossary of terms is provided. Each term is defined in straightforward language that enables readers to better grasp complex concepts and theory. References at the end of each chapter lead readers to more in-depth discussions of specialized topics.

This is an essential reference for analytical chemists, process chemists, and engineers in the coal industry as well as other professionals and researchers who are looking to coal as a means to decrease dependence on foreign oil sources and devise more efficient, cleaner methods of energy production.

Book News Annotation:

This handbook provides readers with guidance on testing and analyzing coal. It offers step-by-step test method protocols for proximate and ultimate analysis, mineral matter, physical and electrical properties, thermal and mechanical properties, and spectroscopic and solvent properties. It also explains the meaning of test results and how those results can predict coal behavior and its corresponding environmental impact during use. Emphasis is on relevant ASTM standards and test methods, including corresponding ISO and BSI test method numbers. The handbook will be useful for analytical chemists and engineers in the coal industry. Speight has written other books on fossil fuel processing and environmental issues.
