Biofuels, Fuels and Oils

Biofuels, fuels and oils must meet a number of parameters required by law.

CEMITEC can characterise fuels, diesel, biodiesel and other biofuels:

  • Characterization of oils, fats and grease
  • Characterisation of glycerine
  • Waste energy characterisation
  • Project development in the following areas:
    • Extraction and refining of oil and grease
    • Homogeneous and heterogeneous transesterification
    • Adequacy of biofuels to regulations/legislation
    • Biofuel material compatibility studies
    • Biofuel stability studies

CEMITEC is a pioneering technology centre for biofuels, fuels and oils. It is a member of the Subcommittee 3. “Fuels” of the Standardisation Technical Committee for 51 “Oil Products” of AENOR, and is recognised as a reference laboratory for biodiesel and diesel by the European Commission Institute for Reference Materials and Measurements (IRMM) and was the first laboratory accredited by ENAC for the analysis of biodiesel.
