Fabrication of TERM bioactive scaffold with tailored biological and physical properties made with selected natural materials.

NanoMaterials for solar fuels production in photoelectrochemical cells (PEC) 

NanoMaterials for solar fuels production in photoelectrochemical cells (PEC) 

PEC technology is one of the most promising candidates for the production of solar fuels, defined as the conversion and storage of solar energy into the chemical bonds of high energy-density molecular species, such as H2 from water splitting or CO2 reduction products (CO, CH4, CH3OH, CH2O2, CH2O).

Nanostructured materials for photocatalytic wastewater remediation 

Nanostructured materials for photocatalytic wastewater remediation 

Advanced Oxidation Processes (AOPs) are innovative water treatment technologies, based on the in-situ generation of highly reactive transitory species (i.e. H2O2, OH-, O2-, O3).

Waste to Energy and Chemicals

Waste to Energy and Chemicals

The goal is to upgrade biomass residues and wastes into high valuable carbon materials through a zero-energy process. To achieve this, hydrothermal carbonization (HTC) and solar energy are combined in a single techonology.
