The RE-CORD Consortium laboratory, created in 2011, is dedicated to the chemical and physical analysis, in particular in the field of renewable resources and biofuels. The laboratory provides qualified support to your business thanks to a wide range of scientific instruments and many years of experience. It can realize a wide range of analyses for analytical, industrial and scientific purpose.
The RE-CORD laboratory performs a wide range of physical and chemical analysis according to the main European and international standards on a large variety of materials.
The laboratory has a great experience with solid and liquid biofuels, such as woodchips, pellets, briquettes, olive husk, sawdust, coal, vegetable oils, biodiesel, bioethanol, but also used cooking oils, water, sludge, compost, wastes, plastics and polymers.
For each kind of material specific analysis sets are available to allow a full and accurate characterization.
The RE-CORD group experience comes from its long activity in the use and processing of biomass, and also from the implementation of several pilot plants as well as test beds for the thermochemical conversion of biomass. The RE-CORD group is involved in major research projects with a wide number of national and international partners. Therefore the laboratory is now an important reference for the analysis and characterization of many materials.
The laboratory keeps on taking part to the research activity of the RE-CORD group and its partners in many important projects. At the same time the laboratory offers an high quality service to many industrial activities, thanks to its expertise and its innovative instruments and equipment.
In addition to the analysis service the laboratory provides consulting in the biomass and related sectors. In the microbiological field the laboratory can perform anaerobic digestion tests on different types of substrates in order to evaluate the biogas production. Moreover a dedicated reactor is used to study microalgae growth.
