Science in the Faculty of Process and Environmental Engineering

The latest major research projects

The Faculty's scientists are engaged in international research cooperation and take part in interdisciplinary projects. INREP is one of the more notable research undertakings carried out by a consortium of 13 science and industry organizations with the financial support from the Horizon 2020 programme. The project concentrates on advanced scientific investigation into thin films used, among others, in solar cells, smart phones, and LCD displays, to make their manufacture more environment friendly. One of the goals of the project is to explore alternatives to rare elements such as indium (In) as they tend to increase the economic cost and environmental impact of the devices in which they are used.

The research conducted at the University aim at improvement of environmental protection, not least in its close vicinity. MONSUL is an example of this type of research activity. the Norwegian Institute for Water Research (NIWA) was an international partner in the project. Factors that impact the ecological condition of the water in the Sulejów Reservoir were analyzed. The goal of the project activities was to measure, assess and predict ecological capacity of the Reservoir, and analyze factors that influence the quality of its waters. Continuous monitoring and a 3D model of the Reservoir were used in the study. A measurement system was developed - floating on the water surface and transmitting data online to the computer - to control the Reservoir water quality parameters.

INVITES is another example of an international research project carried out at the Faculty. The goal is to develop innovative equipment for intensified recovery of CO from flue gases. The project's Polish and German team work on advanced technologies for more efficient and effective CO2 capture from flue gases, exhaust fumes and contaminants in industrial installations. The new equipment coupled with biochemical or chemical absorption activators should improve the efficiency of energy generation. Methods of designing machines for power plants, cement batching plants, and chemical plants based that incorporate life-cycle
analysis and information technology will also be developed in the project.
