Laboratory of Forest Biomass
The Forest Biomass Laboratory of the Faculty of Forestry and Wood Technology of the University of Zagreb has been designed as the central location for research and quality control of the forest biomass for energy in the Republic of Croatia. In accordance with the constitutive objective, the construction, equipping of the laboratory and the education of the laboratory staff was carried out following the example of similar European laboratories.
The laboratory is designed so as to meet the scientific needs of the Faculty staff and the educational needs of its students and to be at the disposal the economic entities, i.e. to offer its services on the market.
Laboratory analysis necessary for the establishment of the monitoring system of solid biofuels in the production and transport chain from the raw material (forest biomass) through the producer to the final consumer, are carried out in accordance with the European, i.e. International standards for solid biofuels (HRN EN; HRN EN ISO); Laboratory staff is actively involved in the work of the Technical Committee 238 Solid Biofuels, Croatian Standards Institute.
Through the continuous education, intensive inter -laboratory collaboration and persistent work on establishing and ensuring the quality system, the Forest Biomass Laboratory of the Faculty of Forestry and Wood Technology in Zagreb will offer the opportunity to our producers of solid biofuels to test the own product in the own country in accordance with the applicable European standards, to improve technological processes and place the product on the market with all necessary declarations either in the Republic of Croatia or on the common European and world market.
