Energy / Biofuels Applications

The possibility of producing energy without a net increase of carbon into the atmosphere has renewed international interest in the Biofuels Industry.  Extrel offers two Process Mass Spectrometers that are used to provide a variety of analyses that help scientists and engineers to develop the biofuel conversion processes accurately and efficiently. The MAX300-BIO™ Bioreactor Gas Analyzer and the MAX300-LG™ Laboratory Gas Analyzer provide flexibility, produces fast and accurate analysis and can withstand harsh process environments.

Alongside the process options for Biofuel analysis, Extrel offers a powerful research tool for the discovery of new Biofuel sources.  The VeraSpec MBx is the flagship instrument for the analysis of pyrolytic byproducts in the search for new biofuel sources.  The VeraSpec MBx has been the proven solution for pyrolytic byproduct analysis by customers such as the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and the University of Georgia’s Complex Carbohydrate Research Center (CCRC).
