Research companies raising Ft 250 mln to set up materials analysis laboratory

Hungarian research companies Geopard and Geochem are in talks with investors to put up more than Ft 250 million to set up a laboratory in Pécs (south west Hungary), Geochem managing director Ferenc Fodor told MTI on Wednesday.

The laboratory will analyze the permeability and other traits of natural and artificial substances. Results of the research, which is unique in Hungary, could be used for the hydrocarbon exploration business and for determining the safest places to store nuclear waste, along with several other applications, Fodor said.

The laboratory will use special instruments being patented by Geopard and Geochem as well as special software under development. Fodor said the laboratory will have orders from foreign clients as well as Hungarian ones. (Mti-Eco)
