Biomaterials Characterization Laboratory (BERL 001)

The laboratory is used for determination of physical and flow properties that are needed to design processing,characterization lab handling and storage equipment for biological materials. Example of projects conducted in the lab include optimizing storage vessel design for biomas feedstocks and physical treatments for ash reduction in biomass feedstocks.

Laboratory Equipment:

• Gas pycnometers
•Humidity chamber
•Powder flow testers
•Texture analyzer
•Particle size image-based analyzer (Camsizer)
•Laser-based particle analyzer
•Moisture meters
