Our laboratory provides service for the analysis of both traditional and non-traditional fuels, different types of combustion residues and certain flue gas parameters. The laboratory is equipped for measuring thermal and technical parameters necessary to determine fuel and energy potential of different materials. We are also able to investigate physical and chemical properties of the products of combustion and pyrolysis as well as the chemical composition of other materials.

Research activities

  • Assessment of thermochemical properties of solid combustible waste materials.
  • Optimization and formation of suitable batches for waste combustion furnaces.
  • Optimization of waste materials energy recovery in pilot plant and operational plant scales.

Basic equipment

  • Thermogravimetric analyzer TGA 701.
  • Semi-automatic calorimeter AC 600.
  • Elementar analyzer CHSN628.
  • Multi-phase carbon and water determination apparatus RC612
  • X-ray fluorescence spectrometer Spectro Xepos (XRF).
  • Surface characterization analyzer Micromeritics 3 Flex (gas physical sorption - BET isotherm).
  • Metrohm 930 Compact Flex ion chromatograph.
  • Isotachophoretic analyzer Villa Labeco EA 102.

Offered services

  • Moisture/volatile carbon/fixed carbon/ash content determination in liquid and solid samples.
