Solid Fuels                                                            Biofuels

To meet the growing demand for coal-related products and solid biofuels, Global Cargo Inspections provides inspection services for all coal-related products and solid biofuels. At loading, discharging ports around the world, quality and quantity inspections are routinely conducted. In the Netherlands, a cutting-edge laboratory utilizes the most up-to-date ISO/ASTM standards to ensure the most accurate results possible. Analyses in triplicate and adapted to meet the requirements of our clients include, but not limited to, the following: ash fusion, mineral, sulfur, ultimate, chlorine, fluorine, hard grove grindability, roga, and free swelling indices.

As an alternative to fossil fuels, biomass can be used to generate renewable electricity and thermal energy. Reduce greenhouse gas emissions by using biomass and fossil fuels (usually coal) together in existing power plants at a reduced cost.

In order to meet transportation fuel needs, biofuels are a type of biomass that can be rapidly converted into liquid fuels. These two biofuels, ethanol and biodiesel, are the most widely utilized now.


Managing and analyzing the biofuels and biomass you sell is our specialty, so we can assure that we provide sustainable added value. In order to meet your quality, safety, and certification requirements for products, we are the ideal business partner because we are present throughout the supply chain.

All of your issues and concerns are handled by a single point of contact thanks to our global network of offices, operations and laboratories.
