Biofuels

Biodiesel is made by a chemical process known as transesterification, whereby glycerine is separated from animal fat or vegetable oil. The process leaves behind two products — methyl esters (the chemical name for biodiesel) and glycerine (a valuable by-product usually sold to be used in soaps and other products). Biodiesel can be used alone (B100), or blended with petrodiesel for diesel engines and can also be used as a low carbon alternative to heating oil.

The following tests address some of the most common problems users experience with biodiesel and its blends.

They will include:

  • Water content
  • Cold Filter Plug Point
  • Pour Point
  • Cloud Point
  • Bacteria, Fungi, Mold
  • Acid Number
  • Ester Content
  • Oxidation Stability

We have devised 5 tests in this suite to give a comprehensive programme for our customers

1A – Raw Material test for used cooking oil, tallow or vegetable oil.
Water, contamination and FFA

1B – Test for Glycerol (Glycerine) component after separation.
Basic Physical tests

Bio 2 – Basic test for Biodiesel
Basic Physical tests

Bio 3 – Intermediate test for Biodiesel
Basic Physical tests plus cold filter plugging point.

Bio 4 – Full test for Biodiesel
full analysis tests to the EN14214 Standard.

Based on Environment Agencies Processed Fuel Oil (PFO) protocol we test all biofuels within our ISO17025 accredited lab.
