The “Instituto de Carboquímica (ICB)” located on the campus Ebro River in Zaragoza, develops its scientific activity in the area of Chemical Science and Technology of the Spanish Research Council (CSIC). The ICB is in the European vanguard in research lines that generate great social sensitivity (CO2 capture/ climate change, air pollution, waste recovery), in lines with new technological challenges (production of hydrogen and renewable fuels) and advanced applications (nanoscience and nanotechnology, development of new sensors, fuel cells, batteries, superconductors, etc.).
ICB is organised into two departments: (Energy and Environment, Chemical Processes and Carbon Nanostructures and Nanotechnology); It is formed by three research groups: Environmental Research Group, Combustion and Gasification Group, Fuels Conversion Group. And the second one is (Chemical Processes and Nanotechnology Department); It is formed by the following research groups: Separation and Detection Group, Research Activities, Structured Materials for Catalytic Applications Group, Nanochemistry Group, Carbon Nanostructures and Nanotechnology (G-CNN)
Analysis Service covers the analytical needs of researchers of the center and offers the same service to researchers from other OPIS and universities, businesses and individuals.
