EDXRF is a quick non-destructive technique for qualitative elemental analysis of main & trace elements and quantitative for all elements contained in solids, powders or liquids. Having the advantage of being extremely quick, easy to operate and requiring hardly any sample preparation has increased its popularity among diverse industries such as Chemicals, Mines & Geology, Petrochemical, Polymer industry.
Biodiesel refers to vegetable oil or animal fat-based diesel fuel consisting of long-chain alkyl (methyl, ethyl, or propyl) esters. Biodiesel is typically made by chemically reacting lipids (like vegetable oil, soybean oil, animal fat with alcohol producing fatty acid esters).
