Laboratory of Circular Economy and Sustainability

People in charge

Laboratory dedicated to promoting process integration (reaction-separation) and research into new technologies for the recovery and recycling of gaseous and aqueous effluents, as well as solid waste. The laboratory also has a unit to analyze the sustainability of processes both in the chemical industry and in the water treatment industry through process simulators and life cycle assessment software. It has a consolidated experience in the field of recovery and reuse of greenhouse gases (CO₂, fluorinated gases), water regeneration (through adsorption processes, advanced oxidation processes and membranes) and valorization of solid waste (bioplastics, determination of persistent pollutants).
