First Geotechnical Centrifuge Facility in Malaysia. This centrifuge was developed to assist geoscientists and engineers in Malaysia to experiment their experimental model in a high g-force environment.

new advanced material of Nano Zero Valent Iron (nZVI) for groundwater treatment was successfully developed at Geology Laboratory in UKM.

Effective Microbe (EM) Enzymatic Study and Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) Investigation (Research collaboration with UKM-USM-TNBR)
