Being the basic method for characterizing oil shale and evaluating its quality, proximate analysis
mainly involves the determination of water, ash and volatile contents using the testing method described in "Proximate analysis
of coal" (GB/T212-2008) .
The mass of volatile matter, fixed carbon, and ash determined by proximate analysis
were expressed as percentage of a moisture-free mass (Table 6).
The results of proximate analysis
of corncob silage fermented with various amounts of digested chicken feather are presented in Table 1.

based multiple regression models for higher heating value estimation of low rank coals.
To determine the rank of coal, laboratory tests such as proximate analysis
(moisture, volatile matter, fixed carbon and ash), ultimate analysis (elemental composition of organic fraction on weight percent basis; carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen and sulfur), heating value, hard groove grindability index (HGI) and petrographic analysis were carried out.
has relied on well-established laboratory methods that are generally accurate and reliable, but because each component requires a specific assay and often multiple steps, a full analysis is time-consuming and costly.
