SGS is pleased to announce the opening of a new fully equipped laboratory in Busan, Korea, for the analysis of coal, coke and solid biofuels.

The new Busan laboratory is strategically located to service the growing needs of solid energy fuels and coke importers and consumers in Korea.

  • Total Moisture
  • Proximate Analysis
  • Ultimate Analysis (C, H, N)
  • Gross Calorific Value and calculation of Net Calorific Value
  • Sulphur
  • Chlorine
  • Ash Fusion Temperatures
  • Major and Minor Elements in ash (XRF)

  • Hardgrove Grindability Index
