The petrological and geochemical characterisation of rocks, soil, precipitations, and construction materials is very important for the evaluation of natural ground and pore water systems, the sustainable usage of geothermal energy plants as well as the appraisal of concrete loss.
Our work spectrum covers the analysis and the following evaluation, interpretation, and consulting in this area:
- petrographical evaluation of solids (reflected-light and transmitted microscopy)
- analysis by X-ray methods (XRD, XRF) and acid extractions
- determination of petrophysical parameters (porosity, water content, density, compressive resistance, water penetration depths)
- isotopical characterisation of solids (e.g. sulphur, carbon, oxygen, nitrogen, strontium, uranium, and thorium isotopes).
