Biofuels Testing

Provider of an extensive range of biofuel analysis, IPL has a wealth of knowledge in the biofuels sphere. We perform testing to ensure your product meets the Regulations and guidelines and provide quality assurance to the supply chain. 

As environmental sustainability is being brought forward on the international agenda, a growth in production and use of biofuels has been identified as a way to lower greenhouse gas emissions and consequently, our carbon footprint. 

IPL has developed testing expertise for:

- Liquid biofuels

- Solid biofuels

- Tallow









Recent trends in the biofuel industry indicate that biofuel blends are set to become a major part of the New Zealand fuel industry. Biofuel blends are a mix of traditional fossil fuels and a fuel made from a renewable substance such as tallow, vegetable oil or ethanol. As new types of biofuels are being developed, standard biofuel testing methods do not always work as intended, hence why the expertise and method knowledge of a fuels testing laboratory becomes quite critical.


With a new generation of biofuels being developed, it is important to choose a testing laboratory that has the specific expertise and knowledge of the methods required, to meet the industry standards.
