UPB is represented in this project by
Research Centre for Environmental Protection
and Eco-Friendly Technologies, UPB-CPMTE, a
non-governmental, non-profit, self-financed
unit founded in UPB in 1998, under the frame
of EU Tempus Program. Its main objective is
developing R&D&I activities in environmental
protection and bio-, nano-technologies.
The main priorities research areas of
developing advanced eco-friendly
technologies and methods for pollution
control in environmental factors and food
research for replacing synthetic chemicals
by natural bioactive principles.
developing of soft-nanotechnology techniques
for obtaining new multifunctional materials
and nano-structures applied in environmental
protection, nutrition, quality control and
expertise on quality of chemical products.
coal conversion and clean technologies,
carbon materials, biomaterials.
results of UPB-CPMTE during the last 5
years: coordination of national and European
projects (FP7, Bilateral Norway) over 70
papers published in ISI journals, 2 patents
and 6 national and 6 international projects
Team members’ expertise is
wide and complex. Several domains describing
the expertise of the scientists
in the targeted field are: coke making, coal
tar processing, obtaining and
characterization of the carbon materials ,
industrial application of organic petrology,
microwave heating applied to materials
processing and chemical synthesis.
30 Members: 9 Professors and Senior
