The Model 440 Elemental Analyzer from Exeter Analytical Inc. is proven to provide precise percentage Carbon (C), Hydrogen (H) and Nitrogen (N) data on biomass samples in as little as 5 minutes
Identifying an optimal biofuel from crop, grass, algae or tree (biomass) samples has traditionally been laborious and painstaking. Determining the percentage Hydrogen data enables easy calculation of the biomass sample gross or net calorific value. With increasing global interest in 'Carbon Trading' the determination of percentage carbon provides accurate data to enable organisations (or countries) to buy and sell carbon permits as part of a program to reduce carbon emissions. The determination of the Nitrogen content of biomass samples using a Model 440 saves considerable time and cost with no diminishment of data quality compared with the traditional Kjeldahl nitrogen determination method.
