Analysis of biomaterials like wood, pulp, non-woods and recovery samples

KCL Laboratory supports your research activities by offering analysis of a variety of different bio-materials. The HPAE-PAD equipment for analysis of carbohydrates, polysaccharides and uronic acids, is installed, calibrated and verified against reference material.

We analyze lignin content (Klason and acid-soluble) and extractives content from wood, pulp, non-woods and other lignocellulosic materials. 

Analyses of recovery samples consist of a large variety of titrimetric and spectrophotometric methods such as analysis of lignin content and Sulphur compounds. We measure carbohydrates, lignin and polysaccharides from black liquor samples as well.

Various analyses of other process liquors (effluents, soap and tall oil) and solid recovery samples like lime and esp ash are also available from KCL Laboratory.

We are proud to highlight that most of the methods were originally developed in-house by KCL.
