The scope of Laboratory’s activities includes:

•   Testing of physico-chemical and performance properties of products with the use of modern test equipment that makes it possible to model the tests carried out, thanks to which the properties under tests may be determined in a better and more accurate way;

•   Monitoring of changes in physico-chemical properties of lubricating oils (used for automotive and industrial applications) during their service period;

•   Issuing of expert’s opinions concerning the quality of fuels, biofuels, and biocomponents;

•   Monitoring and inspection of the quality of fuels;

•   Organising of inter-laboratory and comparative tests;

•   Testing of physico-chemical properties of liquid fuels, biofuels, biocomponents, and LPG for conformity with the relevant normative acts in force;

•   Running of training courses dedicated to the testing and sampling methods and providing of consulting services in the field of fuel testing.

Basic test equipment of the Laboratory:

•   Gas chromatographs with MS, FID, and TCD detectors;

•   Liquid chromatograph;

•   Apparatus for determining the sulphur content of liquid and gaseous fuels;

•   ICP apparatus for determining elements;

•   IR spectrometer;

•   UV VIS spectrophotometers;

•   Fuel and lubricant lubricity testers;

•   Oil product, biofuel, and biocomponent durability testers;

•   Water content determining apparatuses;

•   Apparatuses for testing physico-chemical properties of oil products and biocomponents;

•   Apparatuses tor testing LPG properties;

•   Mobile Inspection Laboratory for LPG testing, capable to determine in situ such LPG characteristics as hydrocarbon composition, motor octane number, vapour pressure, grade, and calorific value.

The Laboratory also carries out jobs commissioned by various customers, collaborates with the Ministry of Science and Higher Education, the Ministry of Economy, the Office for Competition and Consumer Protection, oil concerns, biocomponent manufacturers, power plants, combined heat and power plants, and scientific centres. Experienced research and technical personnel ensure high quality standard of the test research works carried out.
