How Cement Plants Measure Biogenic CO2 Emissions
In a recent article in Global Cement Magazine, Beta Analytic marketing specialist Haley Gershon describes how carbon-14 testing can help cement plants reduce their greenhouse gas inventories by measuring their biogenic, carbon-neutral carbon dioxide emissions.
Carbon-14 analysis of natural products measures the percentage of biomass-derived natural versus fossil fuel-derived synthetic materials. It is a useful tool to detect adulteration with synthetic material in products such as flavors, fragrance, cosmetics, supplements and essential oils.
A standard used to measure the renewable/biobased carbon content of any solid, liquid, or gas through carbon-14 analysis
The EN 15440 is a standard in Europe that includes 3 carbon dating-based methods for measuring the biogenic fraction or biomass content of solid recovered fuels.
The CEN/TS 16137 is a European technical specification that provides test methods for measuring the biobased carbon content of plastics and other carbon-containing polymers.
