Chemical Process Technologies Research Group conducts studies aiming

  • To establish a broad R&D ecosystem both inside and outside the institution with an interdisciplinary working culture in close cooperation with industry and academia in order to make industrial processes greener and more sustainable,
  • To create added value in the industry, to use our chemistry, material and process technology expertise at the highest level and in the most efficient way in the entire production chain from raw materials to products,
  • To use advanced technologies for Defense Industry, in order to allow producing strategically important products with domestic means, and
  • To develop advanced material and chemical process technologies, with a proactive and agile R&D approach that follows universal research trends, especially in the field of sustainable chemistry.

Chemical Process Technologies (KPT) Research Group consists of three main teams:
