Research in the field of environmental-friendly technologies is focuses on two main areas:

  • Improvement of existing manufacturing processes to reduce the production of pollutants. In cooperation with industrial partners, we are dealing with the optimization of technologies, such as replacement of toxic extractants or new design of rectification columns.
  • Increase the efficiency and development of new methods for reducing the emissions of pollutants which are already formed. There are many technologies for reducing the emissions of gaseous pollutants that have been commertially used for decades. We are dealing with increasing their efficiency or developing completely new methods with the aim of fulfilling the strict emission limits. In the field of wastewater treatment, we focus on substances that are persistent in our environment (organic pollutants, xenobiotics). The important of our research is the development of new methods for the detection of pollutants in both, air and water.

Purification of waste gas by catalytic processes

Catalysts are substances widely used not only in the manufacturing industry, but also in the field of waste gas purification. Due to the increasing demands on emissions limit, it is necessary to improve currently used catalysts, and to study and develop new ones.

Waste gas purification by photocatalytic processes

One of the most desired strategies for reducing of CO2 emissions, which production is connected with  the problem of global warming, is the conversion of CO2 into others, more useful chemicals or fuel-based products. This can be achieved by photocatalysis, in which photon energy from light sources is used to activate the catalyst during the reaction. Other pollutants such as N2O, NOx or VOC can also be photocatalytically removedfrom the environment.

Purification of waste gases using sorption processes

In addition to their ability to remove the pollutant from the waste gas or water, sorbents also allow recover  the pollutant by its targeted desorption from the sorbent surface by its regeneration. In addition, sorbents are often made from waste materials, which  leads to the reduction and recovery of solid waste. For these reasons, the development of new types of sorbents and the study of new technological processes for the solid waste processing leading to development of new sorbents for waste gas treatment are very important part of environmental research.

Wastewater treatment

In nature, wastewater treatment is an important step in the water cycle. To maintain the natural balance of the environment, wastewater must be properly treated before being returned to the natural cycle. This process takes place in several stages, during which solid particles, organic matter and chemical pollution are removed.
