We are the leading institute when it comes to non-energetic use and analysis of fossil, renewable or recycled carbon carriers.
Our core competence is the design as well as engineering & construction of demo-scale units for the production of syngas via gasification and pyrolysis and the respective downstream syntheses.
Another focus is the characterization of solids such as energy carriers and products from thermal processes.
An outstanding capability of our laboratory is the ETV-ICP-OES. The direct solid sampling method enables the simultaneous analysis of a large number of elements quantitatively as well as qualitatively in a wide range of concentration (ppb - %). Furthermore it allows conclusions regarding the binding characteristics and association of some elements.
