ASD Inc. Helps Drive Efforts in Global Biofuels Industry

Boulder, Colorado [] Furthering its commitment to supporting quality and measurement standards in the global market for biofuels, ASD Inc. has partnered with the Colorado Center for Biorefining and Biofuels (C2B2), a cooperative research and educational center devoted to the conversion of biomass to fuels and products. Along with industry partners, C2B2 is a joint effort between the University of Colorado, Colorado State University, Colorado School of Mines, and the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory. The efficiency of biofuel production can be enhanced at every step of the process, from monitoring soil content to assessing final product energy output. Each phase of this process involves sampling and testing – traditionally conducted in a lab scenario. ASD’s near infrared (NIR) spectroscopy technology allows for accurate real-time testing throughout the production process.
