Minerals analysis company Intellection has sold a system that uses coal analysis technology to provide efficient, greener electricity to South African power utility, Eskom.

As a large consumer of coal, Eskom is seeking to use the resource more efficiently, and will apply data from Intellection’s coal analysis technology – QEMSCAN – to predict coal performance in a pulverised fuel boiler and environmental impacts.

“QEMSCAN gives us a thorough understanding of the mineral/phase composition of our coal and ash,” said Eskom Chief Advisor Chris van Alphen.
