Carboxylate Platform Lab

In the Carboxylate Platform Lab, which is housed in Morrison Hall, pretreatment systems and bioreactors for biomass conversion are operated. This lab is equiped with all analytical facilities necessary to perform microcosm, bench-scale bioreactors, and pilot-scale reactors. Our focus in this lab is to convert high-strenght organic wastes into either methane gas or medium-chain carboxylic acids, such as caproic acid.

Lab-scale anaerobic fermenters and separation modules for caproic acid production

A communal office space to work and meet

Benches and hoods for chemical analyses


Additional GCs

More bioreactors

Controlled environmental chamber for photobioreactor-related work
