The Industrial Waste Treatment and Separation Group, deemed a ?consolidated research group? by the Generalitat of Catalonia, is part of the Chemical Engineering Department of the Technical University of Catalonia. Its main objectives are the development of techniques for the separation, recovery and elimination of metals and organic pollutants, the development of analytical methods and new sensors for the monitoring of physical and chemical parameters of environmental and biomedical relevance, and the modelling and evaluation of the behaviour of wastes in the environment.
