Due to an increased awareness of climate change and the subsequent goals of reducing CO2 emissions, the use of biofuels and biomass-based products made from plants and algae has become more common. This is a dynamic industry were discoveries and advancements are made regularly.
Shimadzu has been working with leading researchers and production laboratories to determine their needs and to implement new or improved methodologies. With a wide range of instrumentation and a wealth of experience, Shimadzu can provide you with a complete laboratory analysis package to meet your evolving requirements.
Biofuels include Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF), Biodiesel, and Bioethanol, which are increasingly being used to reduce the environmental impact of airplanes and automobiles. Quality standards have been established for these fuels, such as ASTM D7566 and ASTM D1655 for SAF and ASTM D6751 and ASTM D7467 for biodiesel.
This section introduces analytical solutions for each quality standard.
Biomass is a renewable hydrocarbon resource derived from animals and plants. Wasted wood, food, and culturable microalgae are mainly used. This section introduces analytical instruments used in algae culture management and analytical examples for biomass research.
