The mobile laboratory is equipped with instrument and devices that are capable of conducting various water quality analyses on-site that are previously required to be brought back to the conventional laboratory.
The analytical equipment available in the mobile laboratory include ion chromatography (Metrohm), UV spectrophotometer (HACH), water quality tester, optical microscope, BOD incubator, total coliform and E.coli analyzer, and metalyzer for heavy metal analyses. These equipment are capable to analyse different types of water quality parameter.
Bio-Methane Potentital (BMP) test are widely used in studies concerning the anaerobic digestion of organic material or substrates. This test is very helpful to to determine the amount of bio-methane obtainable from different organic subtrates under different operational conditions, It also enables us to determine the biodegradability of the substrates, the relative rate of bio-methanation and the synergistic effect of multiple co-substrates. BMP test modules are useful for technical and economic optimization when designing a biogas plant.
The coastal hydraulics laboratorylaboratory of COEI is at UTM Kuala Lumpur. It provides an opportunity for researchers to satisfy their academic curiosity and to gain precious experience in running physical models and conducting experimental works in coastal and hydraulic engineering. COEI has adequate laboratory and field facilities and instrumentations such as the Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler(ADCP), AEM USB current meter, Vectrino Velocimeter, water level recorder,water and soil sampler, OBS turbidity and temperature monitoring system, wave flumes and a wave basin. The facilities and equipment are suitable for short-term and long-term field and laboratory observations. The facilities are also available for use by other research collaborators.
