Biomass Analysis


Evaluating utilisation options for biomass or wastes is a complex matter. Factors that need to be considered include:      

  • fuel analysis and handling issues     
  • conversion technology and materials     
  • emissions, fouling, corrosion and waste disposal     
  • design, implementation and optimisation of biomass and co-firing options     
  • identifying alternative uses for the biomass or wastes


    HRL can enable its clients to meet these challenges by:    

    • characterising, optimising and certifying of the feedstock analyse
    • testing the project feasibility         
    • selecting the right technology     
    • designing the process to match the fuel     
    • project managing the construction     
    • optimising the operation     
    • assisting in applying for relevant carbon and other credits


    • Resource assessment using EN/ASTM/ISO specific methodology
    • Design of sampling programs and sampling
    • Fuel production     
    • Waste-to-energy     
    • Biomass combustion and gasification     
    • Biomass co-firing     
    • Biofuels
