Process Gas Analytics
VTT has over 30-year experience in gas analytics. We have built our competence by designing and implementing various kinds of biomass gasification applications. During technological development it has been crucial to have reliable analytical techniques in order to achieve results with impact. Therefore, in addition to our analytical services, we are eager to provide our knowledge for interpretation of analysis results and possibilities to improve our customer’s processes. In gas analysis we have excellent capabilities to analyze gas components, such as, permanent gases, hydrocarbons, tars, sulphur and nitrogen compounds and water.
Tar analysis »
Tar analyses are particularly relevant in biomass related thermochemical processes. VTT has extensive background knowledge especially in the development of gasification processes and their analytical methods. For tar analyses we use methods derived from CEN/TS 15439-specifications.
On-site measurement campaigns »
In addition to analytical services, VTT has skilled personnel and specially designed equipment for on-site measurement campaigns.
Special impurity analytics »
For gas impurity measurements, VTT can offer well established protocols for sulphur, nitrogen and cyanide compounds as well as analytical possibilities for many other gas impurities.
Hydrogen analytics »
VTT has extensive knowledge about hydrogen analytics from industrial scale quality assurance applications to fuel cell trace impurity measurements.
Catalyst and Process R&D
Modifiable, multipurpose laboratory reactors for thermochemical reactions.
has decades of experince in catalyst development for thermochemical
reactors. We are specializing in catalysts that are durable in harsh
Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD)
Pinhole-free, conformal thin films with accurate thicknesses for multiple purposes. With ALD you can produce novel materials and coatings or enhance the properties of existing solutions.
