Projects

The IfG Leipzig is certified according to the DIN EN ISO 9001-2015 (TÜV).

The IfG has amongst others referces on following areas:

  • extensive laboratory studies on location specific rocks of the mining horizon respectively under- and overlaying stratum in context of the develoment of a feasibility study (i.a. Germany, Austria, Russia, Great Britain, Congo, Ethiopia, Thailand, Laos, Brazil, USA, Canada...)
  • Expertise of leaching caverns in the salt stock Harsefeld and in the deposits of Teutschenthal, Bernburg and Staßfurt (Ger).
  • Expertise of high pressure gas storage in unterground cavern at the locations Bernburg, Bad Lauchstädt, Epe, Kraak, Xanthen, Peckensen, Etzel and Kiel (Germany) as well as Great Britain, Portugal, Netherlands and USA.
  • Dimension of extraction systems in potash and rock salt mining for shaft plants in Thuringia, Hesse and Saxony-Anhalt (Germany) or at several sites worldwide, e.g. Brazil, Congo, Canada and Russia.
  • Expertise of the long term safety of unterground waste disposal in Zielitz, Borth and Niedersachsen-Riedel (Germany).
  • Expertise of the long term safety of different unterground repositories of hazardeous waste, e.g. in the federal state Saxony-Anhalt and Thuringia (Germany).
  • Research activities on behalf of federal government and states for the evolutiuon of basic rock mechanical hazard scenarios and safety concepts for all areas of final disposal of radiactive waste and for the underground disposal of chemical toxic waste in salt formation.
