What sets us apart?

The Bio-Energy Testing and Analysis Laboratory (BETA Lab) has a complete set of testing and analysis facility for biomass and biofuels. The objectives of the BETA Lab are as follows:

  • To conduct process design optimization work in all aspects of biomass conversion and bio-fuel production
  • To conduct performance testing of engines fueled by biomass-based fuels
  • To conduct air quality and emissions testing for bioconversion technologies
