The Center for Innovation in Engineering and Industrial Technology has its own equipments (table 1) for analysis of several parameters. The partnerships with Chemical Engineering Department (DEQ) Laboratories  and the Center for Water Studies (CEA) allows to extend the provision of services to other areas/parameters.

In the specific area of oil / fat and biodiesel industry, CIETI carries out tests in accordance with the current national and/or international standards, as shown in table 2.
