In the department of biogenic raw materials of the BLT extensive laboratory analysis for biogenic substances are available. The focus of the analysis methods includes samples from solid biofuels (woodlogs, wood chips, pellets, briquettes, agricultural fuels) and liquid biofuels (vegetable oil, biodiesel). The laboratory is accredited according to ISO 17025: 2017.
Lubricants are operating materials such as engine oil or hydraulic oil. To check the suitability, recurring samples are taken and examined in test series, fleet tests.© FJ
In the BLT, the focus of research and testing is in the fuel sector for vegetable oil and biodiesel. Starting from the oilseed through the various processing steps and the transesterification to fatty acid methyl ester, the entire production chain on laboratory scale is available. In the case of oilseeds, the thousand seed weight, the water content and the oil content, and in the case of press cake and extraction meal samples, the residual fat content are determined.© FJ
Various standard parameters on solid biofuels are examined in the BLT fuel laboratory. The results are compared with the relevant limit values of the ÖNORM EN ISO 17225 series and other ÖNORMS (e.g. C 4001: Chopped Miscanthus, C 4003: Loose Corn cobs).© FJ
