The Base of Knowledge of UPWr

Area of interest

  1. Bioconversion (methane fermentation, composting, bio-drying) of waste and biomass in solid and gaseous fuels, fertilizers, sorbents, and other products with high functional values,

  2. Thermal conversion (torrefaction, pyrolysis, hydrothermal carbonization) of waste and biomass in solid and gaseous fuels, fertilizers, sorbents, and other products with high functional values,

  3. The use of bioconversion products and thermal conversion of waste and biomass for soil remediation, reduction of emissions to the environment from industrial and agricultural sources,

  4. Studies on the emission of gaseous and liquid pollutants into the environment during bioconversion and thermal conversion of waste and biomass,

  5. Tests of worker exposure to harmful agents released during bioconversion and thermal conversion of waste and biomass,

  6. Social, economic and environmental analysis of processes and products of bioconversion and thermal conversion of waste and biomass,

  7. Circular economy in agriculture and in the agri-food industry,

  8. The use of microelectronic technologies in waste management,
