Study of biotechnological processes with microorganisms: obtaining maize transglutaminase in Escherichia coli and Pichia pastoris

Controller adjustment

Application of finite elements to the simulation of complex vascular and neurological environments

Simulation of complex processes by means of object-oriented software

Development of software for computer-assisted teaching

Eco-technology laboratory:

Development of non-contaminant industrial processes

Minimization, recycling and assessment of by-products and chemical industry waste

HTCP (Hi-Tech Chemical Processes) laboratory:

Risk evaluation in industrial processes: quantitative risk analysis

Applications of thermal analysis and calorimetry: non-parametric kinetics of chemical and physical transformations; thermal stability of chemical products and nanomaterials; thermal stability of industrial synthesis processes

Process intensification for fine chemicals and specializations: continuous reactors continuous flow separation techniques based on absorption

Numerical simulation of processes: simulation in stationary and dynamic conditions; computational fluid dynamics (CFD)

Waste assessment, with special emphasis on generating energy from agro-industrial waste
