RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT WORKS

 

Prace badawczeScientific and research activities regarding advanced material technologies for ceramic, glass, refractory and building materials, are undertaken as:

  • internal and supervisor research grants,
  • R & D projects,
  • Technological initiative,
  • works financed from the statutory activity and projects financed from EU funds.

The broad scope of research work themes includes:

  • ceramics: oxide and non-oxide, colouring agents, bioceramics, refractory ceramic materials,
  • glass: building glass, household glass, coated glass and vehicle windows,
  • mineral building materials: cement, cement and concrete products, lime products.

In the field of ceramics, the research activities include:

Process improvement to obtain monolithic and porous constructions, in this nanostructural and gradient materials of high mechanical resistance (eg. ballistic ceramics) which are thermal stress proof in high temperatures, forming ceramic, metallic and semiconductor nanopowders as well as new technologies to receive decoration agents like pigments, enamels and paints to decorate articles made of glass, ceramic and metals, ceramic composites (ceramics-glass) of various physical and chemical properties, biomaterials including glass-ionomer cements for use in otosurgery, bioglasses, ceramic implants and cements for use in bone surgery.

 

In the field of glass the activities include:

Optimisation of glass acquisition technologies; elaborating low-waste and no-waste technologies; adjusting technologies to the Best Available Technology (BAT) requirements, EU legal requirements and international standards for health and environment protection; elaborating methods of processing glass and mineral production waste with the view of its reuse or safe storage; research regarding acquisition of porous glassy materials and glass-ceramic materials for biotechnology and environmental protection purposes.

 

As far as refractory materials are concerned, the following research and development activities are undertaken:

New high temperature ceramic materials with controlled microstructure and texture, monolithic refractories: mixes, concretes, mortars, glues, adhesives, ceramic material macro-, micro- and nanoporous used also for refining liquid metals and separation of colloidal or gas systems, unconventional techniques for ceramic materials manufacturing and regeneration of refractory linings, including ceramic welding technique.

 

In the field of building materials the activities include:

Modern, pro-ecological and energy efficient technologies of manufacturing construction materials; techniques and technologies for mitigating industry's negative environmental impact; cutting-edge technologies of reusing waste raw materials and energy sources; using renewable energy sources in technological processes for construction materials production as well as heat and electricity generation.
