Our Facilities

The Centre’s laboratory facilities include state of the art equipment that includes:

  • Rigs for carbon storage that can operate at temperature and pressures that mimic the conditions under which CO2 is stored in geological formations.
  • Rigs to study co-injection of gas mixtures.
  • CO2 sequestration modules for mineral carbonation.
  • Carbon capture rigs for low and high pressure systems.
  • Artificial photosynthesis: Specialized reactors for using light energy for the reduction of CO2 into fuels and chemicals.
  • Soil gas release facility to monitor possible environmental impacts.

Much of our research relies on the strong analytical base that includes: Solid State Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR); Microscopy; Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry (GC-MS); Isotope Ratio Mass Spectrometry; Thermal Gravimetric Analysis; Differential Scanning Calorimetry-Mass Spectrometry; and High Temperature Rheology.

We also have rigs for mercury measurements (both in gas and solid phases) and for combustion byproducts benefication.
