Petrochemical (Energy)

Maintaining an efficient, productive plant while ensuring a clean environment in which all regulations are met is a delicate process that demands powerful instruments. Shimadzu understands this balance.

Offering a range of systems to meet your specific demands, Shimadzu can provide you with the versatility to ensure compliance with methods from ASTM, the GPA, the EPA, and more, while helping to pave the way for the study and conversion of bioresource products like corn into fuel-grade oxygenates, such as ethanol.


National and international concerns about air quality, coupled with an uncertainty regarding the supply of oil, have led to an increased interest in the promotion/use of non-petroleum fuel sources. In recent years, a number of ethanol and biodiesel production plants have been built or are currently planned for construction, primarily in the Midwestern U.S. Adjusting to this changing climate, Shimadzu has been working with a number of engineering firms and production labs to determine their needs and whether new or improved methodologies can be implemented. With a wide range of instrumentation, and a wealth of experience, Shimadzu can provide you with a complete laboratory analysis package to meet your evolving requirements.
