There are extensive laboratories with equipment from bench to pilot-plant scale. We are one of the few departments in the UK with access to mass spectroscopy, scanning electron microscopy and atomic force microscopy and a ‘virtual-reality’ suite where you can construct and optimize your own complete processing plant.
Postgraduate students also have access to research facilities including a range of equipment, for example:
Total organic carbon
Strong acid digestion of rocks
Research test rigs – multiphase flow
Drop tube furnace
Flow in pipe rig
