April 2015. Explosive gas detection in scientific institute
The Institute of Science and Innovation for Bio-Sustainability (IB-S) originated as a new consortium between two research units from the University of Minho, the Molecular and Environmental Biology Research Centre and the Institute for Sustainability and Innovation in Structural Engineering. The main purpose of the IB-S is the development of cutting-edge research and innovation in Sustainability Sciences with special focus on the combined sustainability of built and natural environments.
The IB-S premises include two infrastructures located in the University of Minho at the Campus of Gualtar (Braga) and the Campus of Azurém (Guimarães). The building in Braga hosts bio-prone activities, while the building in Guimarães hosts engineering experimentation. These infrastructures comprise about 3.000m2 of laboratories and other technical facilities.
These installations are protected by DURTEX HC explosive gas detectors, designed and manufactured by DURÁN ELECTRÓNICA.
