Equipment and Test Methods


The equipment of the institute includes a chemical-biological laboratory, a workshop, numerous test facilities on a laboratory and semi-technical scale as well as a test facility on the grounds of the Hannover-Herrenhausen wastewater treatment plant.

A mobile measuring station, transportable test containers and three cars enable measurements, pilot operation, sampling and consultation directly on site. This equipment is available for the practice-oriented processing of research projects, external orders and expert opinions as well as for the execution of laboratory internships in the course of courses.
