This laboratory is focused on the study of biomass - a promising renewable energy source with great potential. The purpose of this operation is to research the properties of solid biofuels (pellets and briquettes) made of different types of biomass and mixtures thereof, including interesting energy crops and agricultural waste. The Biofuels Laboratory is fully equipped with modern equipment such as a calorimeter, a muffle furnace, a laboratory oven drier, a vibrating device for determination of particle size distributions, and a flue gas analyzer. A part of the laboratory is also a hammer mill for the processing of biomass and a briquetting press for the production of compacted fuels.
The laboratory is mainly engaged in measuring the main physico-mechanical and chemical parameters of various materials (moisture content, gross calorific value, ash content, particle size, content and composition of emissions during combustion, etc.) following EN and ISO standards.
