    Significance and Use

    5.1 These procedures are used by producers and users of RDF for determining the total sulfur content of the fuel.

    1. Scope

    1.1 These test methods present two alternative procedures for the determination of total sulfur in prepared analysis samples of solid refuse-derived fuel (RDF). Sulfur is included in the ultimate analysis of RDF.

    1.2 The test methods appear in the following order:



    Eschka Method

    8 – 11

    Bomb Washing Method

    12 and 13

    1.3 These test methods may be applicable to any waste material from which a laboratory analysis sample can be prepared.

    1.4 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. Inch-pound units are provided for information.

    1.5 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. For specific precautionary statements see Section 6.

    1.6 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
