Analysis of Biomass for Thermal Processing
analysis of biomass for combustion

Our Analysis Packages for Bioenergy Parameters


Currently the main energy use of biomass is for combustion. We have a range of analysis packages to help you determine the value of your feedstocks for the production of heat and electricity or utilisation in other thermal treatment processes (e.g. pyrolysis and gasification).

Our laboratory is equipped with a number of state-of-the art items of equipment that allow us to determine the most important combustion-related properties of your biomass including calorific value, volatile matter, elemental composition, and moisture content.

We recognise that it is important that you have confidence in the analytical data that you receive. That is why we follow internationally-recognised standard analysis methods and undertake all analyses in duplicate, reporting values for each of the replicates analysed, along with the average and the standard deviation. This allows us to repeat the analysis (at no extra charge) if the deviation values are high.

Moisture and ash contents are of crucial importance for combustion. This is reflected in our online, Excel, and pdf reports where all data for bioenergy-related parameters are expressed on dry-mass, as-received, and dry-ash free bases, according to standard method EN 15296:2011.

The analysis packages that we offer, and the analytes that they determine, are listed below. Click on an entry for further details.
