SERG's infrastructure includes three labs:

  • the sustainable solid fuels laboratory

  • the boilers laboratory

  • the building physics laboratory

SERG’s sustainable solid fuels laboratory is equipped with the required infrastructure for the physical, proximal and elemental assessment of solid fuels, including biomass and biofuels.

The SERG’s boilers laboratory consists of four boilers, all equipped with the required devices for determining the temperature and boiler operating pressure, as well as to implement the exhaust gas analysis for the definition of the combustion conditions

SERG possesses the required equipment for the implementation of building physics tests and measurements with regard to the thermal behaviour of building elements and of buildings, based on international and European standards.
