Organic Geochemistry

In the Organic Geochemistry division BGR-scientists direct their work on a better understanding of the energy resources coal and petroleum. In addition to applied aspects such as maturity determinations and assessments of the hydrocarbon potential of rocks, advanced geochemical methods are used to reconstruct organic-rich palaeoenvironments and better understand efficient ways of the use of energy resources. Moreover, geochemists also contribute to projects directed on an improved knowledge to the BGR topics Final Disposal of Nuclear Waste and CO2-storage.
