Apparatus that are available in the carbon capture laboratory at the University of Edinburgh to provide a complete suite of characterization techniques for solid adsorbents include:

  • Setaram Sensys Evo TG/DSC system for gravimetric and calorimetric measurements (equilibrium and kinetics)
  • Quantachrome PoreMaster 33: mercury porosimeter
  • Quantachrome Autosorb-iQ-C: BET surface and volumetric adsorption isotherm system
  • Quantachrome AutoTap and Ultrapycnometer for bulk and skeletal densities measurements
  • Porosity measurements
  • Gravimetric and calorimetric measurements
  • Innovative Gas Separations for Carbon Capture (IGSCC)
  • Adsorption Materials and Processes for Carbon Capture from Gas-Fired Power Plants (AMPGas)
  • Carbon Nanotubes for Carbon Capture
