Research projects

Research projects with Icelandic and foreign partners represent a sizeable part of the operations of the Chemical Analysis Department of Innovation Center Iceland. The work involves collaborative projects with research institutes, universities and businesses.

Analyses and tests

  • General chemical analysis – analysis of various matrices; composition and trace elements
  • Chemical analysis of foodstuffs, feeds and soil – minerals and trace elements

Environmental and pollution measurements

  • Environmental monitoring – automatic monitoring stations
  • Measurements and monitoring of various components in air, i.e. particulates, fluorides, sulphur dioxide and nitrogen oxides (NOx)
  • Measurements of the chemical constituents of rainwater, freshwater, river water, seawater and effluents
  • Fluoride measurements, carbon measurements and nitrogen measurements in vegetation
  • Emission measurements – chemical measurements of emissions and discharge from heavy industry, industrial companies and waste incinerators
