Biodiesel fuel testing
Biodiesel is one of the fastest growing markets in Canada and the United States, and Maxxam is well positioned to be part of this growth. As Canada’s largest testing laboratory, Maxxam is accredited by the Standards Council of Canada (SCC), to ISO 17025 guidelines, with the ability to analyze biodiesel.
Maxxam began preparing for the analysis of biodiesel in 2002 by expanding our current diesel fuel testing scope. We have invested in the latest technology available and we are able to complete all of the tests required by the ASTM D6751-11b specification.
