Analytical Instruments for Biodegradability & Compostability - Energy - Bioenergy
When oxygen is not available under the anaerobic conditions, the measurement of released biogas (a mixer of methane and carbon dioxide) is the method for evaluating anaerobic biodegradability. Biodegradability test can be performed under “certification” or “screening” conditions. Certification conditions are required in cases where the results are intended to be used for certification and/or making public claims on biodegradability, whereas screening conditions are suggested for internal research purposes.
The Gas Endeavour® is a novel respirometer for both anaerobic and aerobic biodegradation analyses. For anaerobic biodegradability test, the Gas Endeavour® provides efficient and accurate data analyses on biogas release in any aqueous medium, controlled slurry digestion system and high-solids anaerobic digestion condition. In case of aerobic biodegradability test, the Gas Endeavour® is intended be used together with our patented in-situ carbon dioxide absorption kit to function as a closed respirometer system for measuring oxygen demand. With help of in-situ carbon dioxide absorption kit, the Gas Endeavour® becomes a powerful tool and analysis platform for both anaerobic and aerobic biodegradability analyses in various environmental conditions and support the most of important ISO, European and American standards for anaerobic and aerobic biodegradability evaluation.
The Gas Endeavour® gives you a better understanding of the degradation kinetics of biodegradable polymers. The precision of measurements and data calculations have been validated with the highest quality and standards.
Fully automated analytical procedures, extendable testing capacity and full control of experiments with remote access. The Gas Endeavour® reduces the time consumption and labour requirement for performing both anaerobic and aerobic biodegradability analyses and make the test being less skill dependent for precise and accurate data.
Real-time temperature and pressure compensations minimise the impact of possible variations in measurement conditions in analysis and standardise data presentation, satisfying the highest demands for data accuracy and precision. An adaptive nonlinear mathematical model is also implemented in the latest released Gas Endeavour® to achieve an outstanding high linearity for oxygen demand and carbon dioxide evolution measurement in all measurement ranges.
The modular approach enables flexible system set-up, easy upgrading options and simple maintenance. The Gas Endeavour® can easily be further expanded by connecting multiple instruments with a network switch in order to satisfy demands and shorten development times.
Simple to use and easy to learn. The web-based software application makes setting up and monitoring experiments very easy. The Gas Endeavour® allows easy access from a remote location using any computer, smartphone or tablet.
