Biofuel Analysis and Testing

Today, ContractLaboratory.com received a request from a company for testing fuel additives. One type is Biodiesel. According to the The National Biodiesel Board (NBB)’s website, Biodiesel is a fuel comprised of mono-alkyl esters of long chain fatty acids derived from vegetable oils or animal fats  and meeting the requirements of ASTM D 6751. The US Department of Energy’s Alternative Fuels Data Center describes it as Biodiesel is a renewable, biodegradable fuel that can be manufactured domestically from vegetable oils, animal fats, or recycled restaurant grease.

Biofuel Testing and Analysis

Biodiesels can be bleneded  Biodiesel can be blended and used in many different concentrations. The most common are: B100 (pure biodiesel), B20 (20% biodiesel, 80% petroleum diesel), B5 (5% biodiesel, 95% petroleum diesel) and B2 (2% biodiesel, 98% petroleum diesel).

ContractLaboratory.com has helped many alternative fuel and energy companies, refineries and processors with their Biofuel Testing and Development. Here are some examples of Projects that we helped with:

 

  • INDIA LABORATORY NEEDED FOR BIOFUEL TESTING CETANE NO2.WATER CONTAINT3.calorific value4.exhust emission test5.break thermal efficiency6.any all other test for bio diesel
  • Laboratory needed for IEEE biofuel and biogas testing. Systematic experimental investigations are planned to study the thermal efficiency, fuel consumption, brake power and mechanical efficiency for 4-stroke C I engine for different loads and speeds. The experiment will be conducted by using 100% biodiesel and diesel blends the results will be compared and utilized to draw the performance curves
  • East Coast USA needed for ASTM biofuel testing on a biofuel (non-ester renewable diesel/fuel oil) product. See testing requirements The specific tests we need are:Moisture and Volatile Matter (AOCS ca 2d-25)Ash Content (ASTM D482)Sulfur by ICP-OES (ASTM D5185)
  • University Researcher needs Dubai analytical chemistry laboratory for biofuel testing: 9 samples for Hydroxyl Value tests 5 Samples for Glycerin tests Please let me know the price of each test and the least amount of each sample
