Industrial minerals II: Grade and quality control for coal mining

Analytical techniques for optimizing recoveries in coal production will be the subject of this webinar. These include CNA (cross belt neutron analyzer), XRF (X-ray fluorescence), XRD (X-ray diffraction) and CT (computed tomography).
Technical information, supported by case studies, will be discussed alongside the commercial benefits of each technique.
This webinar targets the coal mining industry, industries that utilize coal such as smelters and power plants as well as research- and service laboratories and academic institutions focused on coal research.
