Research directions of the Institute

In terms of protection

Determination of physicochemical composition of primary and secondary aerosols to assess their impact on health and the environment, determination of the impact of air pollution on climate change, determination of the amount and composition of pollutants emitted by industrial and energy facilities, with special reference to hazardous substances, testing of chemical and physical properties of chemical substances emitted into the air, determination of emission factors.

In terms of protection

Methods of wastewater treatment and water treatment for industrial purposes, research on the recovery of nutrients from municipal and industrial wastewater, possibilities of using minerals (peat, lignite, clay, bentonite, diatomaceous earth) and waste materials as economical and effective sorbents for heavy metals and organic pollutants in the remediation of water, wastewater and soil.

In terms of protection
the surface of the earth
