Capacity and facilities to assist industry

Our facility is available to researchers and industry partners interested in conducting mid to large-scale research projects.

As part of our consultation services we use our state-of-the-art equipment to test fuels and additives.

For an indication of the type and scale of projects we conduct, refer to our projects.

Our partners

We’re a collaborative facility working closely with the energy sector, international and local research institutions and research funding bodies to investigate, use and invest in alternative and renewable fuels. We have a joint partnership with the International Laboratory for Air Quality and Health (ILAQH) at QUT, which is a World Health Organisation (WHO) Collaborating Centre on Air Quality and Health.


We currently have three different diesel engines mounted on engine dynamometers, all specifically designed to accommodate different types of alternative fuels such as:

  • biodiesel
  • fumigated ethanol
  • liquefied petroleum gas (LPG)
  • hydrogen

We have two new small engines (gasoline and diesel) to allow performance and emission testing of small quantities of fuel.
