TU Clausthal

Clausthal University of Technology (CUT) is an internationally renowned institution with strong regional ties. Important areas of research and education at CUT are Energy and Raw Materials, Natural Science and Materials Science. At the Institute of Petroleum Engineering, researchers are developing ‘rock-on-a-chip’ models to mimic complex porous oil-containing media on a microscale. This allows systematic investigation of the effects of e.g. grain morphology and pore size on oil recovery. Moreover, transparent chips allow optical experiments and image analysis, which is normally impossible for rock lab experiments.
