Challenges related to environment, health and energy are tackled at this research line. Engineering expertise is applied towards process optimization in order to achieve best economic and energy performance while simultaneously reducing ecological footprint.
Computational simulation and modelling in the environmental and health area are a key focus of this line, providing solutions for predicting behaviour of environmental pollutants and to better understand mechanisms of macromolecular assemblies.
Beyond this, alternative separation techniques are being developed for improving separation processes.
