Main achievments
  • Elaborating on the concept of intensification of the process of burning nickel catalyst carrier in a tunnel furnace.
  • Elaboration and experimental verification of the model of cell convection during the process of adsorption with a chemical reaction.
  • Elaborating on a mathematical model of separation and purification of gas mixtures with the application of pressure swing adsorption and using this model for the analysis of a number of practically important problems of separation.
  • Elaborating (together with IMN in Gliwice) on a national variant of the method of wet-limestone desulphurisation of exhaust gases; implementation of this variant in five industrial plants.
  • Elaborating (together with ER Rybnik) on a variant of a dry method with wetting of exhaust gas desulphurisation (a patent no. PL 190768); implementation of this variant in three blocks in Rybnik Power Plant.
  • Participation in elaboration of a special report IPPC Carbon Dioxide Capture and Storage (Peace Nobel Prize in 2007 for IPPC).
  • Development of a hybrid adsorptive-membrane process for the efficient separation of carbon dioxide from flue gases.
