Service: Biofuels calorie testing


Whether you are a producer or user of biofuels, it is very important to know how much energy your fuel will release when burned. Biofuels calorie testing is often ordered in conjunction with a number of other tests that describe the fuelÂ’s various characteristics.
 
You might be interested in this service if you:
  • are currently producing biomass fuels,
  • are considering entering the biomass fuels market with your forest or agricultural waste products,
  • require analysis of raw fuel materials (feedstock) and resultant final product,
  • burn wood pellets to heat your home or farm and would like to know the amount of energy released.
 
How to prepare the sample before submission.
