 Profile

 

TUL is a technical university with 6 faculties. Faculty of mechatronics and interdisciplinary engineering studies concentrates to interdisciplinary engineering education and research, where nanotechnology is an important part. Nowadays research deals with application of surface modified nanoparticles and nanofibres for remediation of polluted groundwater, waste and surface water and rock environment. It is mainly application of zero-valent iron nanoparticles for cleaning of waters from chlorinated hydrocarbons, PCBs, heavy metals; surface modification of nanofibres to apply them as catalysts (metal plating), as polymeric nanofiber scaffolds for bioremediation, biosorption or light sensitive substances to produce singlet oxygen for oxidation processes in waste water.
