Cracow University of Technology posted this:Low energy building design and thermal refurbishment of existing buildingsOUR MAIN GOALS Tools and good practice procedures for low energy building design, enabling to reduce demand on heating and prevent cooling demand while maintaining high indoor air quality. Because of the big volume of poor quality prefabricated apartment buildings, that still exist in Poland, one of our goals is also to elaborate a scenario of holistic revitalisation of those buildings in accordance with the requirements of sustainable development.
Cracow University of Technology posted this:Laboratory of Photochemistry and Optical SpectroscopyDesign and synthesis of new photoinitiators dedicated for cationic, free-radical and hybrid photopolymerization. The research are performed to improve the speed of the curing processes of polymer coatings by developing innovative polymerization photoinitiators having a very better parameters than those already used in industry. The search for more effective initiators are fully justified from the practical point of view in industry photocurable polymer coatings.
IMDEA Water Institute posted this:Geomatics laboratory for water resources managementIMDEA Water works on the methodological development and application of different spatial tools to support water resources management, including environmental mapping, remote sensing, the design and implementation of spatial databases and geoportals, applications for provisioning networks, and hydrological and hydrogeological modelling. New spatial information sources (LIDAR, GPS, digital terrain models, high-resolution imaging or drones) enable us to create new, high-resolution thematic mappings. Remote sensing techniques help derive biophysical vegetation variables (vegetation indices, water stress, agricultural output, crop evapotranspiration, etc.), geological mapping, soil usage, etc. Spatial databases record and order this information, forming a Hydrological Information System able to analyse the topological and quantitative relationships of different variables, the development of advanced 3D mapping and its implementation in web geoportals. Hydrogeological modelling by means of individual numerical models and/or coupled with hydrogeochemical models allows us to assess water resources in terms of their quantity and quality, and can be the basis for decision-making on the issue of water resources, both for surface water and groundwater bodies. Combining the extraction of data contained in old mappings and geo-positioning techniques with GPS allows the identification of hydraulic heritage elements for the development of decision-making support strategies.
IMDEA Water Institute posted this:Biology and microbiology laboratoryIn our Biology and Microbiology laboratory we provide surface and groundwater analysis services in order to: • Support water quality surveillance initiatives through standardised national and international methods, in accordance with the Water Framework Directive (WFD 2000/60/EC) and Groundwater Directive (GWD2006/118/EC). • Monitor cyanobacteria blooms and their toxins in surface water and develop technological solutions for the elimination of cyanotoxins in water treatment.
IMDEA Water Institute posted this:Laboratory techniques for contaminant transport assessmentLaboratory techniques: Experimental analysis of processes affecting transport of contaminants through the vadose zone and the aquifer are necessary to interpret field data, especially when the recognition at field level is hampered by the complexity of the environmental system. Batch and column experiments, specifically designed to simulate field conditions as reliably as possible, provide valuable information on interaction between contaminants and vadose zone and/or aquifer materials. These laboratory techniques are also useful to assess the response in terms of contaminant removal during water reuse and water treatment activities. Experimental study should always be coupled with numerical modelling to quantify contaminant transport parameters, with the aim of finding the nexus between field and laboratory research.
