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:

  • biodiesels
    • waste cooking oil
    • vegetable oil
  • ethanol and butanol
  • pyrolysis and thermochemical biofuels
  • microalgae-based biofuel
