After the revision of one of the valves of the gas circulation system at the HotBENT experiment, on Sept. 16th 2021 the gas monitoring of all sampling ports within the drift was launched. This will allow observation of possible changes in the gas composition even during the early stages of the experiment.
On Jun. 24th/25th 2021 Entracers performed the first gas sampling in the HotBENT experiment at the Grimsel Test Site.
Between April 8th and April 9th 2021 Entracers GmbH collected gas samples from the Full-scale Emplacement (FE) experiment located in the Mont Terri Underground Rock Laboratory.
