Founded in 1992, Analytik-Service GmbH (since 2021 Analytik-Service AG) - ASG for short - is a testing laboratory accredited by DAkkS based in Neusäß near Augsburg. Since the beginning, both fossil and regenerative fuels have been the focus. In addition to standard and special analysis for liquid, solid and gaseous fuels, the company's range of services also includes the production of test fuels and quality assurance materials, the implementation of REACH-relevant investigations (Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals) of chemicals for submission to the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) and the construction of analytical instruments.
In recent years, ASG has successfully completed a wide variety of master's and doctoral theses. This made it possible to adapt methods such as two-dimensional gas chromatography(GCxGC-TOFMS, GCxGC-FID) for the analysis of fuels. In addition to the gas chromatographic methods, a large number of other analytical instruments such as ICP-MS, ICP-OES, voltammetry, XRF, etc. are also available. This makes it possible to completely characterize complex mixtures of substances comprising present trace components.
In addition to the analytical questions, ASG is also dedicated to the optimization of chemical processes in a specially designed pilot unit. Among other things, projects with partners from research and industry for the conversion of renewable raw materials into so-called "e-fuels" are also being conducted on there.
Finally, ASG contributes its expertise to national and international standardization committees for the standardization of test methods and requirements standards.
