Laboratory Facilities

The advanced biofuels lab facilities include a range of modern and versatile equipment for

  • analysis and characterization of biomasses and organic materials for processing
  • analysis and characterization of bio-crude, transport grade bio-fuels and solid bio-fuels
  • pretreatment of biomass for conversion
  • production of bio-crude, liquid bio-fuels and biogas through thermochemical and biochemical conversion
  • end use, such as combustion for CHP or fuels for transport (Diesel, jet)
