Solid recovered fuels - Methods for the determination of biomass content

This European Standard specifies three normative methods for the determination of the biomass fraction in solid recovered fuel, and when to use each method. The methods are the selective dissolution in a hydrogen peroxide/sulphuric acid mixture, the manual sorting method and the method based on the 14C content.

Feste Sekundärbrennstoffe - Verfahren zur Bestimmung des Gehaltes an Biomasse

Diese Europäische Norm legt drei normative Verfahren zur Bestimmung des Biomasse-Anteils in festen Sekundärbrennstoffen fest und wann welches Verfahren anzuwenden ist. Die drei Verfahren sind die selektive Auflösung in einem Wasserstoffperoxid-/Schwefelsäure-Gemisch, das Verfahren der manuellen Sortierung und das Verfahren auf der Grundlage des 14C-Gehaltes.

Combustibles solides de récupération - Méthode de détermination de la teneur en biomasse

La présente Norme européenne spécifie trois méthodes normatives pour déterminer la fraction de biomasse dans un combustible solide de récupération et le moment où utiliser chaque méthode. Les méthodes sont la dissolution sélective dans un mélange peroxyde d'hydrogène/acide sulfurique, la méthode du tri manuel et la méthode basée sur la teneur en 14C.

Trdna alternativna goriva - Metoda za določevanje biomase

Ta evropski standard določa tri normativne metode za določevanje frakcije biomase v trdnih alternativnih gorivih in kdaj se vsaka od metod uporablja. Metode so selektivno raztapljanje v mešanici vodikovega peroksida/žveplove kisline, metoda z ročnim razvrščanjem in metoda, ki temelji na vsebnosti 14C.
