The National Physical Properties and Processes Laboratories (NP3L) is one of two centres of excellence that showcase BGS's laboratory based research, the other being the National GeoEnvironmental Laboratories (NGEL).
The NP3L undertakes research on physical properties and processes in the subsurface, with a focus on key science challenges such as radioactive waste disposal, carbon storage, clean coal technologies, groundwater and pollution modelling, and engineering hazards.
Within these pages you will find information on our state-of-the-art laboratories that support this facility, as well as some recent examples of our research highlights.
