From the laboratory to the field: our analysis resources

Dairo Ballestas Castro, program coordinator, introduces us to the means of analysis of “new gases” in the laboratory and in the field using mobile equipment.

RICE (Research & Innovation Center for Energy) is a world-class centre of expertise, carrying out R&D activities dedicated to the entire gas chain and its contribution to the energy transition, serving operators in the sector, industrialists and other international research bodies such as the Pipeline Research Council International (PRCI) and the European Gas Research Group (GERG). The multidisciplinary expertise of RICE’s 100 experts (technicians, engineers, researchers, etc.) and the study and testing resources they have at their disposal are major assets in supporting the development of renewable gases (testing, sampling, gas quality analysis, technical adaptations of
