COAL & COKE

Coal & Coke

Independent and impartial analysis is a vital part of successful operation within the coal trade. We provide analytical services to producers, consumers and transporters of coal, coke and petroleum coke. This enables our clients to circumvent any economic consequences during transportation.

Including:

  • Coal
  • Coke
  • Coking Coal
  • Petroleum Coke

TRUSTED EXPERTISE

Coal & Coke is heterogeneous in both its size and composition, meaning it can exhibit wide quality variations within a single cargo.

Alfred H Knight is well equipped to handle the difficulties that can arise when sampling coal & coke. To obtain truly representative samples, we carry out our sampling in strict accordance with International Standards such as ASTM, ISO and BSI.
