We're up for the challenge
WRc has specialist facilities for preparing bulky and challenging samples for onward analysis. We have a range of shredders, grinders and disc mills suitable for a wide variety of large volume wastes, fuels, feedstocks, residues and products.
Our technical experts are able to undertake bespoke test set-ups on products and wastes to accommodate non-routine test requirements. These include:
- variable time frames,
- running tests at different seed to substrate ratios to assess microbial inhibition,
- undertaking sacrificial testing for compound biodegradation studies, to inform environmental fate and behaviour studies.
WRc’s waste characterisation laboratories are UKAS accredited to ISO/IEC 17025:2017 for a suite of anaerobic and aerobic tests on untreated and treated solid wastes from waste treatment plants. We are also BCS-approved for the Residual Biogas Potential (RBP) test, the cornerstone of the Anaerobic Digestion Quality Protocol.
