Biodiesel is an alternative for diesel which is obtained from a diverse range of feedstock namely from plants, animal fats, soybean oil, other edible and non-edible oils etc
Companies all over the world are reducing their reliance on fosil fuels and seeking out a more
sustainable alternative fuel to run its large fleet of vehicles, machinery and energy needs.
Biodiesel is one such alternative.
Atlas Lab provides a comprehensive state-of-the-art Biodiesel Testing Program.
By conducting the testing and analysis of Biodiesel and Biofuel samples we can evaluate their
quality, quality confirmation, blending evaluation, ensuring the right blend vis a vis blend is
supplied, to ensure there is no contamination, no residues left in the Biodiesel,
confirm and validate if the Biodiesel meets the technical and environmental requirements
of national and international standards.
Atlas Lab works closely with consumers, manufacturers, blenders, new biodiesel petrol pump owners to test the full range of Biodiesel available in the market i.e B5 biodiesel, B20 Biodiesel, B100 Biodiesel etc.
What are the benefits of Biodiesel Testing?
- Recognize the cause of high fuel consumption
- Ascertian the quality of Biodiesel fuel supplied
- Recognize the cause of power loss
- Determine if the Biodiesel fuel meets National and
- Improve Engine and Machinery performance
