The laboratory consists of a suite of interconnected controlled atmosphere dry-boxes. These are equipped with the necessary furnaces, cell systems, potentiostats and other equipment for characterisation, required for research into, and development of, each of the essential elements of pyrochemical reprocessing at the laboratory scale.
There is flexibility in the configuration of the PRL, with users able to request individual modules to demonstrate the feasibility of individual components of pyrochemical reprocessing. Alternatively the entire facility may be utilised to demonstrate a complete pyrochemical process, including monitoring and analysis.
Access to the PRL facility is facilitated by the lab manager, Dr Justin Elliott (Justin.Elliott@ed.ac.uk) who can provide advice and guidance on utilising facility equipment to meet your research needs.
