CCIC Singapore Pte Ltd Laboratory as part of our vision to ensure a green and safe environment, provide analysis of renewable biofuel blend and measurement of biomass-derived carbon to total organic carbon within carbon-containing solids, liquids, and gases conduct.

As support for the local rapid growth and flourish environmental-friendly and renewable fuel producing customer, we can help in providing verification services of biogenic and biobased content of their renewable product, in a carbon credit trading program.

You can benefit from our radiocarbon dating analysis results in two ways. Depending on the prevailing regulations, the results can be used to support your reduced greenhouse gas inventory. Besides, with a cap-and-trade program in place, the results can help you to obtain more carbon credits.

Globally, US EPA has incentivized the use of renewable fuel via credit trading program. The European Union allows the use of Biogenic Carbon Content Testing, C-14 dating analysis for monitoring other types of heterogeneous fuels. The Australian government has incorporated similar requirements for the use of C-14 dating for blended fuels. The Renewable Obligation Certificate program in the United Kingdom is also considering this method for monitoring biomass energy production. The method has also been incorporated in a UN Clean Development Mechanism methodology concerning solid waste management.

We verify the biogenic (biomass) fraction of heterogeneous fuels and their carbon dioxide emissions as required in greenhouse gas protocols in accordance with ASTM D6866 method C, Liquid Scintillation Counting (LSC).  The method has been incorporated into reporting protocols in the US, Australia, and Europe. A variant of ASTM D6866 is used to monitor refuse-derived fuels for the European Union’s Emission Trading Scheme. The fuels include Renewable Diesel, Biodiesel (FAME), Bioethanol, SAF (Sustainable Aviation Fuel), HVO (Hydrotreated Veg. Oil), Bio-marine fuel etc.

Our Liquid Scintillation Counter can measure the radioactivity of other material include but not limited to the following:

  • Measurement of bioplastic content in packaging material
  • Measurement of gross alpha and beta in water samples
  • Measurement of gross alpha and beta in air borne particulate
  • Measurement of tritium (H-3) in urine, water, and ice
  • Measurement of Po-210, Ra-226, Ra-228, Ac-228, K-40, U-234, U-235, U-238, Th-228, Th-230, Th-232, Pu-239, Pu-240, Am-241 and Sr-90 in various samples
