Solid Biofuels


Applied research and development for all procedures of the provision and use of solid biofuels has been part of our expertise for more than 30 years.

Our focal points are supply and logistic chains for wood fuels and herbaceous materials, but also research on testing and specification of fuel quality, research on standardization and on quality control. Particular emphasis is placed on procedures for the thermal transformation of energy. In our combustion test stands for heating appliances up to 500 kW thermal power output, the interrelation between fuel type/quality and combustion technology with respect to performance and especially to pollutant emission is analysed. Modern emissions monitoring technology helps to determine essential exhaust gas components and particle emissions.
