In many countries coal have been and for the foreseeable future will continue to be the most important source of energy. The methods of coal combustion within the Clean Coal Technology Program require information on trace element distribution. It concens especialy those wich have a negative environmental impact. These data are important for introduction of new technologies for coal utilization. Adequate data are generelly available for sulfur but only incomplete for As,Cd,Cl,F,Se
