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
, volatile matter
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.
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.
