Volatile Matter


Volatile matter is determined as the loss in mass, less that due to moisture, when a sample is heated at 900 degrees Celsius for a period of 7 minutes. This procedure is undertaken out of contact with air under standardised conditions.

We determine volatile matter according to the procedures outlined in European Standard EN15148-2009 ("Solid biofuels - Determination of the content of volatile matter") and we use a Carbolite Volatile Matter Furnace and special volatile matter crucibles that have been specifically designed to satisfy the requirements of this method.

We report the volatile matter 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).
