Nanomaterials

Laboratory of nanomaterial application

The laboratory is comprised of 7 individual, yet closely cooperating laboratories, whose research is primarily focused in the area of potential applications and preparation of nanolayers.

Laboratories aim mostly at the research of sound-absorbing structures, materials for the construction of barier systems to protect or remediate the environment such as research and development into filtration materials of different geometric structure with the possible functionalization of new membranes as bio-mass carriers or carriers of chemically active substances.

Laboratory of biotechnology

The laboratory is focused on the development of various nanomaterials and their following verification in (bio) technologies designated for environmental applications. An example is the application of nanofibres as a biomass carrier for wastewater treatment or a carrier of other nanoparticles for targeted modification of separation membranes used in water treatment. Attention is also paid to the possibilities of fouling and biofouling reduction in separation membranes.

Research is conducted in close cooperation with the Laboratory of chemical remediation processes, especially in the area of preparation/transformation of xenobiotics before its own biological level of purification and/or final purification of media.
