1. Biomass preparation and pretreatment laboratory
2. Analysis laboratory
3. Microreactor laboratory
4. Process laboratory
These areas would usually all be utilised at different stages in the evaluation of biofuels, new feed materials, process variables and catalyst evaluation. One area would never be used by itself without utilising the resources of at least one of the other areas and so the whole facility is offered as an integrated and comprehensive biomass and biofuel evaluation centre.
