Equipment and Test Methods

The institute's equipment includes the chemical-biological laboratory, a workshop, numerous test facilities on a laboratory and semi-technical scale, and a test facility on the grounds of the Hannover-Herrenhausen wastewater treatment plant. A mobile measuring station, transportable test containers as well as three passenger cars enable measurements, pilot operation, sampling and consulting directly on site.

This equipment is available for the practice-oriented processing of research projects, external contracts and reports as well as the implementation of laboratory internships during courses.
