General information :



     The research area of the laboratory is focused on various aspects of the Chemical Engineering and the Process Systems. The aim is to develop new methodologies and approaches for quantitative descriptions of the related technological processes and for their application in the design, management and renovation of the production systems.  Research results are published in six monographies, two chapters of books and over 350 scientific papers. Members of the laboratory have been, and are, partners in numerous national and international projects.
     The highly qualified academic staff of the Laboratory involves two professors, one associate professor, three assistant professors, one MSc and two PhD students.  Two Emeritus professors, doctors of sciences, also actively participate in the research activities.  The senior staff of the laboratory has participated and participates in education and training of MSc and PhD students. Presently, two PhD students study in the laboratory.
     At the present moment research is focused in three main directions:

    • Systems engineering of chemical and biochemical production systems with batch processes;
    • Chemical engineering thermodynamics;
    • Theory of modeling and simulation in chemical engineering.
