Ready to unlock the potential of pyrolysis for your business? At our state-of-the-art lab, we offer comprehensive pyrolysis services tailored to your needs. Whether you’re exploring biochar production, waste management, or creating sustainable energy, our expert team is here to guide you every step of the way.

Lab-scale pyrolysis trials

Do you want to create biochar samples? Upcycle a waste material?

Our carbon lab is equipped with a small-scale pyrolysis unit and afterburner. Trials at this scale are an ideal way to test your materials before committing to large scale production and investments. We create your biochar samples in a controlled and reconfigurable pyrolysis environment.

Our pyrolysis unit is an indirect fired rotary kiln capable of processing between 2-10kg/hr of feed material. Our feed arrangement can be modified to accommodate all types of feedstock whether, wet, dry, sticky, granular or powder form. Reactant gases can be added as an additional variable. Gas sampling points are available although we do no’t provide gas testing services in-house.

Activated Carbon Testing

Deciding when activated carbon needs to be replaced is an important decision both environmentally and economically. At the Carbon Clean lab, we use the most effective testing methods to ensure our customers know precisely when their activated carbon needs to be replaced or regenerated.

Iodine Test​

Iodine number is a widely used parameter for activated carbon testing for its simplicity and a rapid assessment of adsorbent quality. It gives an estimate of its surface area and porosity. The iodine number is defined as the milligrams of iodine adsorbed by one gram of carbon when various conditions in accordance with ASTM D4607 are met.

CTC Test​

In the past one of the most widely used methods to estimate carbons adsorbtion capacity was to pass carbon tetrachloride (CTC) through a sample of carbon under controlled conditions. In recent times this method has lost favour on account of CTC’s negative environmental impact. However, utilising correlations we can still quantify a CTC number using more benign mediums such as butane. This test is quickly and easily performed in our lab.
