June 24, 2009 - Subcommittee D05.21 on Methods of Analysis invites all interested parties to participate in development of proposed new standard, WK22936, Test Method for Determination of Sulfur Forms in Coal by ICP-AES. Standard is to be based on D2492, Test Method for Forms of Sulfur in Coal, but will be focused on reducing required sample sizes. Gravimetric and atomic absorption detection methods will be replaced in proposed standard with inductively coupled plasma-atomic emission spectroscopy.

W. CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa., 23 June 2009-Subcommittee D05.21 on Methods of Analysis invites all interested parties to participate in the development of a proposed new standard, WK22936, Test Method for Determination of Sulfur Forms in Coal by ICP-AES. The subcommittee is part of ASTM International Committee D05 on Coal and Coke. According to Colin Campbell, SaskPower, and D05 member, WK22936 is to be based on D2492, Test Method for Forms of Sulfur in Coal, but will be focused on reducing the required sample sizes. Gravimetric and atomic absorption detection methods used in D2492 will be replaced in the proposed new standard with inductively coupled plasma-atomic emission spectroscopy. The proposed standard will also provide an optional means of directly measuring the organic sulfur fraction using high temperature combustion. The proposed test method would be used in the evaluation of coal preparation and processing operations designed to reduce coal sulfur levels.

For technical information, contact Colin Campbell, SaskPower, Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada (phone: 306-566-2292; ccampbell@saskpower.com). ASTM Committee D05 meets Oct. 18-21 during October committee week in Atlanta, Ga. ASTM International welcomes and encourages participation in the development of its standards. ASTM's open consensus process, using advanced Internet-based standards development tools, ensures worldwide access for all interested individuals. For more information on becoming an ASTM member, please contact Scott Orthey, ASTM International (phone: 610-832-9730; sorthey@astm.org). Established in 1898, ASTM International is one of the largest international standards development and delivery systems in the world. ASTM International meets the World Trade Organization (WTO) principles for the development of international standards: coherence, consensus, development dimension, effectiveness, impartiality, openness, relevance and transparency. ASTM standards are accepted and used in research and development, product testing, quality systems and commercial transactions around the globe.
