The Sulphur content of a sample is the contribution that Sulphur makes to the total mass of the sample. Click here for more information on the elemental composition of biomass.
We determine the sulphur content according to the procedures outlined in European Standard EN 15289:2011("Solid biofuels - Determination of total content of sulfur and chlorine") which states that appropriately validated automated equipment can be used for biomass samples. We use an Elementar Vario MACRO Cube elemental analyser which has been designed to satisfy these requirements and we follow the method outlined in European Standard EN 15104:2011 ("Solid biofuels - Determination of total content of carbon, hydrogen and nitrogen - Instrumental methods") for the use of this device.
We report the sulphur content on a dry-mass basis as well as on an as-received basis and a dry ash-free basis (providing that the ash content and as-received moisture content of the sample have also been determined). We use the calculations outlined in European Standard EN 15296:2011 ("Solid biofuels - Conversion of analytical results from one basis to another") to carry out these conversions.
