Laboratory facility

Last changed: 30 March 2017

The research at SBT is to a large extent done in laboratories of different sizes. There is an analytical lab at the SLU house on campus, with the possibility to do wet-chemical analyses, sieving of materials, etc., and also a wood and wood fiber laboratory that we share with the department of Forest Ecology and Management. We are also collaborating with Umeå University for NIRS (Near-Infrared spectroscopy) and hyperspectral imaging equipment and methods. On the other side of town, at Röbäcksdalen, we have a slightly larger laboratory, the pilot plant BTC for testing of biofuels, and the newly installed biomass dryer. Finally, we are also using a biological lab that is usually referred to as the forest. In this case the research is often done together with the forest industry, which can provide forest types that are of interest for the specific research project.
