Divisions and Laboratories

The School of Chemical and Environmental Engineering is organized into three Divisions, each including a number of laboratories on various subjects.


Division I focuses on subjects, such as:  Collection, treatment, transfer and disposal technologies for gaseous, aqueous, solid, toxic and hazardous waste and sludge. Treatment technologies for potable water. Source inventory models. Monitoring of waste sources and ambient quality; Environmental meteorology. Air and water quality, hydraulic and hydrological models; Pollution risk assessment, ambient quality and emission standards. Energy conservation and alternative sources, transportation modeling and land planing. Development of optimal management plans. Ecology. Environmental impact assessment. Application of Geographic Information Systems. Compilation of environmental data and interlinking with relevant international databases. Environmental Law and governance. Stochastic models. Banach spaces.
