Chem-TechTM provides advanced test services for Biomass fuels. Biomass fuels are gaining increased public and scientific attention, driven by factors such as oil price spikes, need for increased energy security, and concern over greenhouse gas emissions from fossil fuels.
Biomass fuels, also known as non-conventional or solid fuels, are any materials or substances that can be used as fuels, other than conventional fuels. New technologies and advancements in this field has enabled industries adapt to newer biodegradable and conservative fuels.
Alternate fuels are mainly biodegradable substance with good calorific value and which are more greener and eco-friendly than conventional fossil and petroleum fuels. Alternate fuels include substances which and produce large amount of energy on burning .These fuels produce less harmful emission gases.
Some of the biomass fuels tested by Chem-TechTM Laboratories include:
Chem-TechTM has been actively works with industries to help them in their transition from using convention fossil & petroleum fuels to more ecofriendly biodegradable fuels.
Chem-TechTM tests Biomass fuels to National & International standards & specification to check its quality.

Gross Calorific Value is determination of amount energy generated when fuels are burned in presence of Oxygen Environment. It is the amount of heat released during the combustion process for a specific amount of Fuel.
Methods adopted by Chem-Tech for Determination of Toluene Insoluble Content:
Water or Moisture is the most common contaminant in any lubricant or petroleum product. Monitoring the level water in sample is of prime importance to avoid malfunctioning of the equipment or machine.
Water content in petroleum products can be determined by following 4 test methods:
Methods Adopted by Chem-Tech for Water / Moisture Content Determination:
This test method covers the determination of ash in the range 0.001–0.180 mass %, from distillate and residual fuels, gas turbine fuels, crude oils, lubricating oils, waxes, and other petroleum products, in which any ash-forming materials present are normally considered to be undesirable impurities or contaminants . The test method is limited to petroleum products which are free from added ash-forming additives, including certain phosphorus compounds and Organo Metallic Additives.
Ash can result from oil or water-soluble metallic compounds or from extraneous solids such as dirt and rust.
Methods adopted by Chem-Tech for Determination of Ash Content:
Sulphur Content determines the amount of Sulphur present in an Lubricant and Fuel samples. Higher amount of sulphur content in fuels will lead to higher SOX emissions and lead to adverse effects and problems with government regulations.
