Lead contents of coal coal ash and fly ash SpringerLink

Abstract. Flameless atomic absorption spectrometry is applied for the determination of Pb in coal coal ash and fly ash. Lead concentrations in coal and coal ash ranging from respectively 7 to 110 g g −1 and 120 to 450 g g −1 are found. A mean concentration of 1520 g g −1 in fly ash corresponding to a concentration of 117 g m −3 in the effluent gas suggests the importance of ...
