Our focus is in providing high-level tailored analytical support for carbon capture and coal to products projects. This core analytical capability underpins further expansion of the centre's research capacity in lab and pilot production activities.

The analysis of aqueous amine capture solvents and their degradation products is widely known to be extremely challenging for many reasons including reactivity and the orders of magnitude in concentration for major versus minor components impacting on separations. Techniques have been developed to reliably perform these analyses. The new facility is be able to undertake a wider range of high level analytical projects applying our combined 45 years' experience in chromatographic and spectroscopic techniques to the most challenging matrices and problems.
