NEW AND EMERGING TECHNOLOGIES
The substantiation and development of new and emerging technologies, resulting from multidisciplinary collaborations, aiming at transforming the latest generation results of scientific research into globally competitive economic advantages
ICECHIM responds to the technological and societal challenges of the 21st century by substantiating and developing new and emerging technologies, resulting from multidisciplinary collaborations, aiming at transforming the latest results of scientific research into globally competitive economic advantages. New and emerging technologies represent the central point of ICECHIM’s development philosophy, the 2019-2022 Core program addressing this field (Advanced chemistry for innovative and emerging technologies).
The innovative technologies developed within the research projects, involving national and international collaborations with entities from the academic and industrial environment, have been proposed for various applications, such as:
Danube WATER integrated management
The strategic project “Danube Water Integrated Management” was implemented in the period 2012-2015 and was financed under the Romania-Bulgaria Cross Border Cooperation Programme 2007-2013.
Evaluation of the exploatation potential potential of porous materials in the treatment of microbiotarelated diseasss
The scope of the current project proposal is to develop novel micro- and mesoporous materials using modern synthesis methods and to functionalize these materials as drug delivery systems.
Green technology for pharmaceuticals removal from water using eco-friendly oxidation catalysts
This project proposes a new and innovative class of ozonation catalysts with a morphology that assures an easy contact of ozone and pollutants with solid surface (thin-films) and green and cheaper technology for catalyst preparation.
Treatment of water from sources contaminated with nitrates and chlorinated organic compounds using integrated catalytic reduction / oxidation and biofiltration processes
The aim of the project is the transfer and development of a technology for water depollution from sources contaminated with nitrates and chlorinated organic compounds (pesticides and their degradation products), efficient and economically feasible
AI & Earth Observation based services for cultural heritage monitoring
AIRFARE aims to integrate several advanced techniques, such as artificial intelligence / machine learning (AI / ML), with change detection techniques based on Earth observation (EO) data from multiple sensors.
Complex multidisciplinary project for monitoring, conservation, protection and promotion of the Romanian cultural heritage
The RO-CHER project proposes an innovative multidisciplinary methodology that integrates high-level scientific expertise for the safeguarding of cultural heritage.
Nanotechnology – innovative approach with the development of materials and techniques for safeguarding cultural heritage
The aim of the project is to provide practical solutions based on new antifungal recipes, to reduce the impact of biodegradation of objects and objectives belonging to cultural heritage.
Integrated management (conservation, restoration, protection) of cultural heritage objectives
The project aims to meet conservators / restorers demands as an aid measure, both by proposing useful measures / strategies in this field, and by the integrated use of techniques developed on the basis of exact sciences.
Promoting cultural heritage using current digital reconstruction technologies
Digital reconstruction presents known theoretical and practical aspects, being today a consecrated term in the field of conservation and restoration of cultural and historical heritage.
Development of plant extracts and innovative phytosynthesized nanostructures mixtures with phytotherapeutic applications in order to reduce biocenotic stress in horticultural crops
In recent decades, in the scientific field of nanotechnology there has been a high interest in obtaining and characterizing nanometric architectures obtained by the methods of “green chemistry”.
Innovative methods and techniques for evaluating conservation-restoration interventions and monitoring the conservation of traditional constructions in Romania
In Romania there is an extremely wide and valuable patrimony of traditional constructions and installations of popular technique.
Determining the methodology and coefficients specific to Romania in order to quantify GHG emissions and absorbtions for the quantification of climate change
Updating and developing the components of the National GHG Emission and Absorption Assessment System and developing a strategy for the implementation of the Paris Agreement.
Techniques for storing and capitalizing on the results of advanced scientific research (SoVaReX)
The project responds to the need to promote the results of advanced research to raise their value by the business community, local public administration and other potential end users.
Depollution of water containing hardly biodegradable organic compounds (endocrine disruptors) by advanced oxidation processes using innovative catalysts (OXYDEP)
Endocrine disruptors (ECDs) are synthetic chemicals that mimic the function of hormones and, once in the body, alter the hormonal balance.
Innovative apatitic materials with enhanced antimicrobial activity for building materials and cultural heritage conservation
The project proposes the use of metal-doped hydroxyapatite as an antimicrobial component in construction materials.
Innovative ferrite / beta-cyclodextrin core-shell nanocomposites for the removal of organic and inorganic pollutants from aqueous effluents
This project proposes a new and innovative class of nanoadsorbents with core-shell morphology, obtained from ferrite particles (core) and cyclodextrin molecules (shell).
Avant-garde design of nanomaterials and nanosystems with practical applications in the scientific preservation of Romanian cultural heritage
The project aims to develop and / or optimize methods for the restoration and conservation of cultural assets, through the use of nanomaterials.
