List of available PhD theses

Application of advanced nanostructured catalysts in environmental technologies

Department: Department of Environmental Chemistry, Faculty of Environmental Technology
Theses supervisor: doc. Dr. Ing. Martin Kubal

Annotation

The dissertation thesis is focused on the development of innovative catalytic procedures in the treatment of wastewaters, air streams or wastes. Within the new project 3deCAT of collaborative industrial research, a lot of series of advanced nanostructured catalysts of metal oxides will be prepared, and consequently, they will be examined at laboratory model conditions in the remove of recent hazardous pollutants from waste streams. These model process simulations will combine modern technologies with heterogeneous catalytic processes, as photochemical, electrochemical, microwave and other advanced processes. In next project phase, promissing catalytic procedures will be developed toward dedicated reactors for these technologies implementation in industrial field.

Effectiveness of biochar application to contaminated soils under drought stress

Department: Department of Environmental Chemistry, Faculty of Environmental Technology

Annotation

Biochar application represents one of the current topics of global importance. This application results in carbon sequestration and also has significant effect on soil properties and soil biota. Biochar application contribute by positive biomass growth, physiological and biochemical traits of plants, soil microbial activity and also reduction of negative impacts of toxicants in contaminated soils. In the same time, soil water saturation is another important aspect. The aim of the study will be to determine the effects of biochar (of various origin) on the soil organisms, mainly plants, under combined stress conditions, i.e. water deficit and contamination of the soil by heavy metals.

 Life Cycle Assessment of bio-energy and biochemicals production

Department: Department of Environmental Chemistry, Faculty of Environmental Technology

Annotation

Bio-based products are promising materials and fuels whose production and use will grow in the coming years. Although I can reduce these environmental burdens from traditional fossil materials and fuels, bio-based products can represent other forms of environmental burdens. The aim of this thesis is to create a conceptual tool for environmental impact assessment of bio-based products taking into account their entire life cycle.

Life cycle assessment of logistics

Department: Department of Environmental Chemistry, Faculty of Environmental Technology

Annotation

The environmental aspects of logistics should be one of the criteria taken into account by project planners. The LCA method makes it possible to compare the environmental impacts of different anthropogenic stressors with respect to the entire life cycle of the product, technology or service. Environmental impacts can be assessed globally or locally, but mainly either in general or with a focus on the site. This work will focus on the creation of a methodology for the identification and presentation of environmental aspects of logistics.

New wastes and their material flow analysis

Department: Department of Environmental Chemistry, Faculty of Environmental Technology

Annotation

The dissertation thesis is focused on the analysis of emerging wastes or wastes with increasing amounts due to structural changes in the industrial sector or consumer habits.
