Laboratory of waste and fuel analysis


Laboratory is equipped with the basic analytical aparatus for determination of thermochemical parameters in solid wastes and fuels samples which are necessary for their assessment from the standpoint of possible energy recovery. Equipment of the laboratory includes other analytical instruments used for determining chemical composition of different samples and materials, not only fuels and waste.

Research activities

  • Assessment of thermochemical properties of solid combustible waste materials
  • Optimization and formation of suitable batches for waste combustion furnaces
  • Optimization of waste materials energy recovery in pilot plant and operational plant scales
