Our researchers are committed to fuelling a greener Australia by continually refining biofuel composition for best performance and lowest emissions.
Our research priorities cover:
- biofuel development
- engine performance testing
- engine emissions testing.
BERF is Australia’s largest biofuel production testing facility, specialising in engine performance testing and biofuels emissions testing. Our research team is one of only a few in the world that specialises in the entire lifecycle of biofuel production – from raw materials to fuel processing through to engine performance and emissions testing.
We use our state-of-the-art equipment, to conduct detailed analysis of engine emissions from a broad range of biofuels including:
- waste cooking oil
- vegetable oil
- ethanol and butanol
- pyrolysis and thermochemical biofuels
- microalgae-based biofuel
