Charcoal Laboratory Work
Whereas the traditional charcoal-maker rarely engages in analytical work, the industrial charcoal producer cannot do without it. Raw material composition, quality control, investigation of customer complaints, environmental and safety regulation, etc. are the problems to be dealt with. Fortunately, the analytical procedures to be performed do not require extremely sophisticated and expensive equipment. The procedures for analysis are the same as those employed for bituminous coal and these are set out in national standards (e.g., for Germany the relevant standards are contained in DIN 51749). The cost of equipping a charcoal laboratory with a basic inventory is around U.S. $ 8,000. This figure does not include the provision of space and furniture.
