"Biomass boilers research and testing" branch which helps
manufacturers to conceive, to improve and to certify heating equipment.
This branch has laboratory testing means at its disposal for boilers of
power up to 1 MW :
- measure of energy performance (thermic evaluation, output…)
and emission of gaseous and solid pollutants (NOx, CO, CnHm, dust…) ;
- control of safety systems.
A mobile laboratory also allows characterization of on-site equipment
(without any power limit).
