Excellence Center for Natural Gas (CECGN – Centro De Excelência Em Gás Natural) When new demands of research in the area of natural gas appeared with the discovery of pre-salt in 2008, Coppe created together with Petrobras the excellence center for natural gas (CE-GN). The objectives of the center are to develop studies and technologies for natural gas and to turn the knowledge produced in the labs and UFRJ research units into products, processes and services. The Excellence Center for Natural Gas ( CECGN - Centro De Excelência Em Gás Natural) includes the following labs and institutions: 1) Laboratory for Membrane Separation and Polymers – PAM ( Laboratório de Processos de Separação com Membranas e Polímeros; 2) Laboratory for Hydrorefining, Process Engineering and Applied Thermodynamics – H2CIN ( Laboratório de Hidrorrefino, Engenharia de Processos e Termodinâmica Aplicada; and, 3) Centro Rio+. The Laboratory for Acoustics and Vibrations (LAVI - Laboratório de Acústica e Vibrações) and the Laboratory for Applied Thermodynamics and Molecular Simulation (ÁTOMS - Laboratório de Termodinâmica Aplicada e Simulação Molecular) will be soon settled within the CE-GN.

Fundo Verde (Green Fund) The Fundo Verde, a laboratory installed within the Park area, is supported by ICMS (Brazilian State Excise Tax) relief resources derived from the University’s electrical usage, an annual fund of around 7 million reais. The tax money is delivered back to the University under the condition of being reinvested in environmental projects designed to reduce electricity consumption and to generate sustainable alternatives. Among the initiatives implemented by the Fundo Verde we have the biodiesel van – produced with cooking oil collected from UFRJ restaurants–; the campus bike lane, the hydrogen bus and the electrical car.
