CONCENTRATION AREA

Environmental Technologies and Processes

The Graduate Program in Environmental Science and Technology (PPGCTA) develops work related to treatment and/or waste biotransformation, biological indicators of environmental quality, environmental monitoring and management, and its faculty composed of professionals from different fields of chemistry, biology, pharmacy and engineering. The PPGCTA aims to produce knowledge focused on environmental issues in different sectors of society; qualify professionals with regard to solving existing environmental problems, with the development of scientific and technological activities in the field of Environmental Science and Technology; promote the interaction of academia with the industrial sector and the community, favoring the perception of the need for innovative and environmentally friendly projects; to promote the development of projects applied to sustainable development, environmental control and waste minimization; enable UTFPR graduates and the outside community to access multidisciplinary training close to their training region. The PPGCTA seeks to disseminate its work through social activities, in addition to disseminating its results through the publication of papers in periodicals, as well as encouraging the generation of patents.

LINE OF RESEARCH: CONTROL AND ENVIRONMENTAL MONITORING

This line of research focuses on the understanding of environmental dynamics in relation to human interventions, using periodic indicators, statistical treatment, spatial analysis of data and critical analysis of results. Among the main environmental aspects monitored are the structure and functioning of aquatic and terrestrial environments, the effects of residues and contaminants on organisms and the environment and the instruments used by man in environmental systems management.

LINE OF RESEARCH: CHEMICAL AND BIOTECHNOLOGICAL PROCESSES OF TREATMENT AND RECOVERY OF WASTE

The line investigates and develops technological and biotechnological processes for solving environmental problems including studies related to the characterization and treatment of residues, bioprocesses and biosorption.

LINE OF RESEARCH: SUPPLY WATER TREATMENT AND SEWAGE

The research line in water treatment for water supply and wastewater aims to apply different treatment processes, conventional and advanced, aiming at the removal of micro and macro contaminants and emerging contaminants in waters intended for human consumption, as well as the treatment of effluents domestic and industrial, in order to guarantee the best quality of the treated effluent and the maintenance of the environmental balance.
