Strategic Focus

The group focuses on applied research on the conversion of natural and renewable raw materials into products of commercial interest. It also stresses on the measurement and control of environmental quality parameters in water, air, and soil matrices. All of the above by taking into account the development of sustainable and efficient processes in the use of raw materials, energy, and natural resources. The group does research to obtain results with practical utility, for which technical and economic studies are made.
