Contract R&D laboratory
AeroThermal has a comprehensive testing facility at its laboratory in Poole, Dorset. Our team of specialists, who use a range of high tech equipment, is led by Dr Nigel Bailey MA PhD and Dr Zhenjiang BSc Hons PhD.
Our laboratory specialises in the examination of waste properties before and after autoclave treatment, and in evaluating the anaerobic biodegradation potential of different waste materials.
We have 36 laboratory-scale constantly stirred digesters available and we provide services such as Biologic Methane Potential (BMP) testing and semi‐continuous anaerobic digestion testing of any kind of organic waste or wastewater. AeroThermal has worked on pre-processing waste materials to generate a substrate that can be distilled into bio-ethanol or bio-butanol.
We have run several hundred scientific trials on different waste streams, many in conjunction with Southampton University. Our team has now written over 100 reports and has complete waste trials for a number of major waste companies including, Biffa, Shanks, Viridor, and New Earth Solutions amongst others.
