Zetium - Trace element analysis of organic-rich samples using Zetium and Pro-Trace

X-ray fluorescence spectrometry is used extensively for geochemical analysis. The main reasons for this are simple sample preparation, high accuracy and precision and good to excellent detection limits across large parts of the periodic table.

Organic-rich materials have a variety of uses as fuels, for example coal, petroleum coke and biomass, together with a range of waste materials used as alternative fuels; and as fertilizers, for example compost and sewerage sludge. Accurate trace element analysis of these materials is becoming increasingly important as governments tighten regulations to minimize and control contamination and environmental pollution and promote the use of renewable sources of energy.
