In the laboratory, systematic tests are carried out to develop catalysts for the purification of gases containing volatile organic compounds (VOCs), including methane, propane, butane and organic solvents. The experiments are carried out with different catalysts – bulk and supported on different supports such as aluminium oxide, ceramic materials, stainless steel, aluminium and porous materials. Potential partners and customers of the laboratory can be research collectives in the country and abroad with similar scientific interests, such as engineering companies for the creation of semi-industrial waste gas treatment plants and obtaining data for the subsequent design of industrial installations for specific sources.
