Laboratory Analytical Procedures

NREL develops laboratory analytical procedures (LAPs) to provide validated methods for biofuels and pyrolysis bio-oils research.

Biomass Compositional Analysis

These lab procedures provide tested and accepted methods for performing analyses commonly used in biofuels research.


Bio-Oil Analysis

These lab procedures allow for the analysis of raw and upgraded pyrolysis bio-oils.


Microalgae Compositional Analysis

These lab procedures help scientists and researchers understand more about chemical composition of algae as a feedstock to convert to biofuels.
