Algae Biofuel Testing

Testing, research, development supporting algae produced biofuels.

Intertek tests algae biofuel quality, biofuel components, and other materials made from algae. Intertek biofuel research and production support helps clients optimize R&D efforts, and  reduce and avoid issues caused from contaminated or out-of-specification biofuels. Technologies for production of biofuels from algae include usage of waste-stream CO2 from industrial plants, which promotes the growth of algae that can be converted into fuel-grade ethanol and biodiesel. 

Intertek biofuel laboratories support algae produced biofuels research and development programs with a wide range of analytical testing capabilities.

Algae biofuel testing support:

  • Micro-algae Growth Rate Determination (at a given set of conditions, analogous to corrosion testing).
  • Nutrient Effects (maximize oil content)
  • Silicon Content
  • Carbon, Hydrogen, Nitrogen and Oxygen (CHNO) Analysis
  • Metals Content of Algae
  • Total Oil Content of Algae
  • Composition of Algae Oil (including metals and triglycerides)
  • Research and Development expertise
  • Quality Control in Manufacturing on Algae Farms
  • Pilot Plant Testing to Convert Algae Oil to Jet and Diesel fuels
  • Biocrude Delayed-Coking
  • Testing of Biofuel Jet Fuel and Diesel Products
