Biomass is an industry term for an energy source that is essentially organic matter (sourced from waste or a renewable alternative). Burning a Biomass source releases carbon, however this has been classed as a renewable energy source in the EU and UN legal frameworks, because plant stocks can be replaced with new growth.
As with other energy from waste materials, the Biomass must undergo laboratory tests to meet the necessary requirements of the end users’ technical specification.
How can i2 help?
At i2, we are accredited to test the following parameters in Biomass:
MgO, Na2O, K2O, TiO2, SO3,
P2O5, MnO2, BaO, SrO)
For each of these areas of expertise we can provide:
- One-off samples
- Fast track projects
- Portfolio of on-going projects (site investigation and remediation)
- Large volume throughput projects
- Long term contract work (at set preferential rates)
