Sucofindo opens Indonesia's first coking coal laboratory

Indonesian state-owned inspection, supervision, analysis and testing specialist, PT Sucofindo (Persero), now has its own lab for coking coal, the first in Indonesia, located in Balikpapan, East Kalimantan.

"We have develop this lab to assist businesses in obtaining accurate lab analysis results with reduced time and cost. Companies will also experience ease in obtaining speedy lab analysis testing results," said President Director Arief Safari in a written report.

Lab analysis for coking coal has traditionally been done in Australia and China. The new lab will save cost and distance for companies requiring the service.
