Advances in technology enhance environmental sustainability issues. With clean technology incorporated into the manufacturing base, the products required to lift millions of people from poverty could be made with much less carbon pollution. It is unquestionable there will be environmental benefits arising from reduced emission into water and air, less waste for disposal and reduced consumption of water. Our researchers play an important role in creating the options that enable sustainability by developing chemicals, processes, products, and systems that are environmentally preferable, more energy- and resource-efficient, and often more cost-effective. Furthermore, they explore possibilities of using advanced technologies in the remediation of the industrailly-polluted environement and develop those to combat new forms of environmental pollution.
For their research and investigations the experts at the Technical University of Liberec can work in the laboratories with the most up-to-date equipment, which are located at the Institute for Nanomaterials, Advanced Technologies and Innovation
, known as the CxI
Zero-valent Iron Nanoparticles
In this unique method TUL researchers apply nanoparticles of zero-valent iron for the process of nano-remediation, or in other words, treatment of contaminated groundwater and polluted wastewater. Read more.
