What do we offer for the industry and society?

  • Our research concluded that the biomass can be successfully transformed into chemicals and fuel.
  • The photocatalysts facilitate the transformation of polluted water into clean water.
  • Transformation occurs under conditions that are commonly met in nature.

Environmental protection and renewable energy sources 

  • purification of water/​air contaminated with organic wastes
  • synthesis of materials for environmental protection and renewable energy sources
  • production of chemicals as energy carrier/​storage
  • unconventional energy sources: ultrasounds, microwaves

Solar energy is considered the richest and one of the most promising sources of renewable energy on Earth. Its use brings significant economic and ecological benefits.




    • sono-catalytic, photo-catalytic, thermo-catalytic synthesis of pharmaceutical intermediates and food additives
    • synthesis of organic compounds, nanoparticles and new materials with (sono)-,(photo)-,(thermo)-catalytic properties

    The photocatalytic decomposition of pollutants occurring in the natural environment allows for the elimination of harmful substances through their complete mineralization (i.e. the complete process of oxidation of organic compounds to carbon dioxide and water).

    This method is environmentally friendly and does not require the use of toxic materials, and does not use conventional, non-renewable energy sources. A factor that determines the process of photocatalysis in particular is a substance called a photocatalyst.

    Activated by sunlight, it accelerates the course of the reaction, although it does not wear itself during it. In our process, we use titanium oxide, commonly known as titanium white, in the reaction of discoloration of the aqueous solution of gentian violet (gentian) under the influence of light.
