  • Fast and accurate (bio-)fuel analysis with Grabner IROX

    Refineries and regulatory agencies worldwide prefer the GRABNER INSTRUMENTS IROX FTIR-fuel analyzers for fully automatic, fast, reliable and portable fuel testing. IROX measures the entire mid-IR spectrum and provides comprehensive and highly accurate information about fuel composition. More than 30 different components as well as important parameters such as octane and cetane numbers, RVP, ...

  • Easy-to-Use Spectrometer Provides On-Site Detection of Biodiesel in Diesel Fuel for Emergency Backup Generators

    East Norwalk, CT, Dec. 16, 2011 -- Currently, ASTM Method D975 allows up to 5% biodiesel in diesel fuel without the requirement for biodiesel content labeling.  This presents a major problem for operators of Emergency Diesel Generators (EDG) – whether at nuclear power plants or other industrial facilities - as the presence of biodiesel in the fuel can shutdown the EDG.   The ...

  • Pyrolysis Oil from Biomass Could Be Early Alternative to Fossil Oil in Transition to Society Fuelled by Renewables

    Pyrolysis of biomass—thermochemical decomposition of wood or organic waste at elevated temperatures and with minimal presence of oxygen—could be an "interesting" option in a transition to replacing today's fossil oil with renewable alternatives, according to a Bio4Energy expert on the thermal conversion of biomass to fuels and chemicals. Thus far, ...

  • Biofuels studies to benefit from better lab test

    Thank sunlight, algae and green plants for the air we breathe, the food we eat and, in the not-too-distant future, the fuels that power our trips by plane, rail and automobile. In a process that is as complex as it is elegant, as breathtaking as it is breath-making, sunlight excites electrons in plant cells setting off a chain reaction that rips apart water to release oxygen and then changes ...
