Biomass Fuels Testing in Europe

Biomass fuel quality testing and inspection in Europe.

Intertek laboratories in Europe provide complete analysis for biomass fuels, including agricultural byproducts, wood pellets, briquettes, sawdust, hog fuels, bark and straw bales. These and additional biofuel sources can be used as power generation fuels.

Biomass Fuels testing services includes analysis of biomass samples with in-depth knowledge, consultancy and characterization of the biomass fuel. Intertek has the largest biomass fuel laboratory network in the world.

Intertek biomass testing labs in Europe perform tests according to the latest standards, including CEN/TC35 and DIN.  

European Biomass fuel testing: 

  • Determination of the moisture content (humidity), CEN/TS 14774
  • Determination of the bulk density DIN 51705 or CEN/TS 15103
  • Granulometry, CEN/TS 15149
  • Milling of biomass samples to obtain homogenous samples, CEN/TS 14780
  • Determination of critical fuel properties (proximate analysis) such like ash content (ISO 6245 or CEN/TS 14775), volatile matter (CEN 15148) and gross and net calorific values (DIN 51900 or CEN/TS 14918)
  • Ultimate analysis: Determination of Elemental analysis of solid biomass fuel such as Carbon, Hydrogen, Nitrogen (CEN/TS 15104), CHN
  • Sulphur, Chloride & Fluoride (DIN 51724 or CEN/TS 15289) and minor elements such as heavy metals (Chromium, Arsennic, Cadmium, Mercury, Zinc, etc) CEN/TS 15297
  • Determination of Ash fusion characteristics (thermographic analysis) such as initial deformation, softening, hemispherical and fluid temperatures (DIN 51730 or CEN/TS 15370)
  • Ash elemental composition (Al, Ag, B, Ba, Bi, Ca, Cd, Co, Cr, Cu, Fe, Ga, In, Mg, Mn, Na, Ni, Pb, Sr, Tl, Zn) by ICP-OES
