Head of Department
The Department of Industrial Chemistry involves the activities of the EFFRET Research Programs (EFFicient REfining Technologies) and ADPET (ADvanced PETrochemical Technologies). Therefore the activities of the department are especially applied research, experimental development as well as technical and technological support, especially in the area of refining and petrochemical processes. The department usually does research within the short-term projects with a high application potential for customers from the industry.
In addition, multi-annual research projects are being done in cooperation with academia, research partners and industry executives. The department uses modern analytical and instrumentation equipment, including batch autoclaves and experimental units. Of course, there is a close collaboration with the Research department, the Department of Analytical Chemistry, the Technical Section and other ORLEN UniCRE a.s. departments. The department also actively participates in the teaching of University of Chemistry and Technology students, including supervising of their laboratory, bachelor and diploma theses.
