    Abstract

    The rebirth of coal as a fuel and feedstock has increased the concern about and the need for accurate and precise analytical results. As environmental policies and regulation become more stringent and as worldwide energy costs continue to rise, the economic incentives associated with compliance testing increase. This presentation explains how one coal producer is attempting to meet this need for timely, cost-effective analytical results and how this relates to accreditation activities.
