DTU Kemi - faciliteter

Since the inauguration of the new building 211 in the fall 2015, DTU Chemistry is now physically a unified department able to provide even more sublime research and teaching results.

Building 211 provides DTU Chemistry with absolutely firstclass laboratory facilities, a host of support functions, and a new shared foyer area where students, lecturers and researchers can meet and mingle in an informal setting.

The biggest fume cupboard in Denmark
On the ground floor, there are four large teaching laboratories, each with room for up to 24 students, while the first floor houses eight research laboratories for exploring various areas of organic chemistry.

The laboratories also feature a large and technologically advanced machine: 110 fume cupboards distributed over an area of 3,200 m2, that need to be able to handle the special requirements posed by state-ofthe- art chemistry education and research.

The ceiling height of more than six metres ensures sufficient air flow to the labortories’ 110 fume cupboards. A specially futureproofed system for piped gases is to supply the laboratories with gases, while a central vacuum and cooling system services all fume and ventilation cupboards. 

The new Building 211 is built at the end of the existing buildings 206 and 207 and is a direct extension of the renovated Building 209, which now serves as the central chemical handling unit.
