a) Chemical engineering
- Coal technologies applied to waste materials
- Advanced processes of coal and solid waste co-treatment
- Catalysis technology
b) Environmental Engineering and Technology
- Waste valorisation
- Emission control in power generation
My actual work is aimed on design and development of chemical processes for recycling of waste tyres. The processes studied are gasification and pyrolysis. It is very important for the optimisation of these systems to reduce the environmental impact to a minimum while maximising the generation of power or valuable products.
