The laboratory offers services and carries out research in thermal processing of waste materials and alternative fuels with regards to the maximum efficiency of the overall process. The research aims at thermal processing of waste materials and the development of new units for energy and material utilization of a wide range of waste. The laboratory also focuses on the generation of energy from small sources and „Waste-to-energy“ technology.
The laboratory offers complex services in energy recovery from waste:

The laboratory specializes in research of reduction processes and testing of high-temperature properties of raw materials among technological gases. The research focuses on the determination of basic technological characteristics of lump iron ore, metallurgical pellets and agglomerate, or briquettes or pellets from iron-ore metallurgical waste. In the laboratory, we test the reducibility and decay ability (changes in the strength properties) of the materials under the conditions simulating a blast-furnace shaft.
Model prediction of optimal requirements for properties of ore batch (reducibility) and coke batch (reactivity) as for minimising the coke consumption. The software model outputs are analytical diagrams characterizing the possible passage optimum in dependence on the batch parameters.

The laboratory focuses on basic and applied research in combustion, flows, heat transfer, drying, pollutant sorption in a fluidized-bed boiler, and issues related to substitution of conventional fuels with alternative ones. The research also concentrates on the development of mathematical models in the different phenomena and their verification via experimental measurements.
The workplace deals with the pelletization of materials. Pelletization is a material processing method, thanks to which the density of solid particles increases and flow properties improve. This way, materials may be better dosed, and easily stored. When considering certain distances, there may be lower transport costs. Pellets may be produced for energy or other purposes. The workplace makes pellets predominantly from biomass and waste materials. Currently, the demand for solid bio-fuels is increasing world-wide. Therefore, it is vital to prepare solid bio-fuels that are as eco-friendly as possible and profitable.
