Research Projects

Gexcon has participated in various research projects throughout the years. Our expertise is particularly relevant in estimating and mitigating the consequences of major industrial accidents.

Recent initiatives have focused on hazards associated with emerging technologies for conventional and renewable energy production, including hydrogen safety, biofuels, solar panel production, vapour cloud explosions (VCE), rapid phase transitions (RPT), production, storage and use of liquefied natural gas (LNG), carbon capture and storage (CCS) and many more.
