CO2 testing services

Book your appointment now for CO2 testing

Did you know? The biogas plant at Apsley Farms has recovered over 50,000 tonnes of CO2 in the last 8 years.

This CO2 has been absorbed by the arable crops growing and captured in our tanks during the digestion process, we then clean this CO2, test it with our laboratory and is then sold to the food and drink industry to put the fizz in your drink!
The Farm has now invested in the Uni Sensor Carboscan system, a state-of-the-art automated laboratory. This System allows for the provision of CO2 testing services onsite at the Farm, 24/7.

We offer CO2 testing services to any commercial operation. If you are in need of a Certificate our laboratory takes 45 minutes to complete one. You can arrive in a car or lorry, borrow a 6kg canister or we can test directly from your lorry. If you don’t have transport we can organise a courier return service for the canister.

Call us now on 01264 554455 for more information or to book an appointment for CO2 testing.

The CO2 testing process

The Unisensor Carbo Scan is a factory-calibrated system for the online process monitoring of CO2 gas ensuring end-to-end quality assurance.

Unisensor uses the method of optical absorption spectroscopy to identify contaminants, along with its own integrated compartment which performs the different sensory tests (which only a human can carry out) including odour, taste, clarity and oil. When the test is completed an Analysis Certificate will be issued.
