Developing greener technologies and processes

Targeting energy efficiency

Every day, researchers at the Faculty of Sciences and Engineering are actively advancing sustainable development through their work on more energy-efficient and greener mineralurgical processes, more efficient turbine and wind turbine prototypes, and cleaner chemical processes such as catalysis and electroactive polymer manufacturing.

The catalysts we’ve developed are simple organic molecules containing abundant and non-toxic elements.
