Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering

Environmental Engineering Laboratory



The Environmental Engineering Laboratory is a modern research and teaching facility housing several advanced analytical instruments including high performance liquid (HPLC) and gas (GC) chromatographs with a variety of detectors, liquid chromatography with tandem mass spectrometry (LCMSMS), atomic absorption spectrophotometer (AAS), ion chromatograph (IC), nutrient autoanalyser, and total organic carbon analyser.

Other advanced instruments in the lab include a voltammeter for metal speciation work and a microelectrode fabrication system for constructing ion-specific microelectrodes. These instruments are used in a wide range of research projects to analyse organics (such as fatty acids, pesticides, polyaromatics, chlorinated hydrocarbons), inorganic nutrients, and heavy metals by undergraduate and postgraduate students.
