Round Robin tests on Biomass Liquefaction Oils – Archive

Oct 2021

Bio-oils derived from direct thermochemical liquefaction processes (pyrolysis, hydrothermal liquefaction, solvothermal liquefaction) and their partially hydrotreated products span a broad range of properties and behaviours. Round Robin* tests are an essential step between R&D (i.e. method development) and standardization (i.e. actual writing of ASTM/ EN standards), which is an important prerequisite for market deployment of products. Round Robins completed and published by IEA Bioenergy Task 34 have had significant impact bridging method development R&D with the development of international standards for fast pyrolysis bio-oil for commercial heating and de facto standards used by industry and academia.

This archive contains 19 reports/publications on the round robin test campaigns on biomass liquefaction oils carried out by Task 34 members in the past 28 years.

* a round robin test is an interlaboratory test performed independently several times.
