Gas hydrate reactor

The gas hydrate reactor and associated facilities enable research into formation, properties and kinetics of gas hydrate formulations. The facilities are used to develop gas hydrates for energy storage applications in air conditioning. This facility is being expanded to include a demonstration cold storage unit with a storage capacity of 20kWh at 8°C.
