The Institute for Clean Energy Technology (ICET), formerly known as the Diagnostic Instrumentation and Analysis Laboratory (DIAL), is located in the Thad Cochran Research, Technology, and Economic Development Park on MSU’s Starkville campus. ICET is a member of both the Energy Institute and James Worth Bagley College of Engineering.
ICET was first established in 1979 to support the U.S. Department of Energy’s magnetohydrodynamic power program and has historically operated as an engineering measurement and instrumentation laboratory. Of late, ICET has concentrated its efforts on HEPA filter testing and on the development of radiological mapping technologies. Most recently, our organization has established a Nuclear Quality Assurance Program (NQA-1) to better meet the needs of the nuclear power industry. Our facilities include a department for machining and welding, a high-bay laboratory holding six industrial-scale HEPA filter test stands, and additional laboratories equipped for the safe testing of radioactive materials.
We remain committed to providing the infrastructure and testing capabilities to help clean energy technology developers and government agencies find promising solutions to high-level environmental and public health problems.
