Its work is for the benefit of sector operators, industrialists and other international research organisations such as the Pipeline Research Council International (PRCI) and the European Gas Research Group (GERG). The multidisciplinary expertise of RICE’s 100 experts (technicians, engineers, researchers, etc.) and the study and testing resources at their disposal are major assets to support the development of renewable gases (tests, sampling, gas quality analysis, technical adjustments to equipment).
