Recovering matters at the macroscopic scale

This method allows assessment of products, as real fuel for instance, by providing reliable data from their NCV (Net Calorific Value) to their biomass fraction.

That way, their economic value can be compared to those of reference coal or petroleum coke.

Do you know that used shredded tyres have a comparable NCV to coal, and it can contain more than 20% of biomass fraction not subjected to taxes on CO2 emissions?
