    Project title:

    Fly ashes as the precursors of functionalized materials for applications in environmental engineering, civil engineering and agriculture

    Project is carried out within the TEAM-NET programme of the Foundation for Polish Science

    Project description:

    This TEAM-NET joint project assumes using fly ashes as a precursors for the synthesis of novel functionalized materials with the structure of not only zeolites, but also mesoporous silica materials and metal-organic frameworks (MOFs). Then produced materials will be tested for possible applications in agriculture, civil and environmental engineering. With the implementation of new technologies of coal combustion and flue gas treatment, new types of fly ashes with increased content of unburned carbon (up to 30%) have been produced. Such byproducts will be used in this project for the synthesis of novel zeolite-carbon composites. Previous work related to the use of this type of fly ashes was focused on the separate production of zeolites or activated carbons, which did not fully exploit the potential of the above-mentioned byproducts. Their use as a precursor to the synthesis of a zeolite-carbon- vermiculite composite in this project will also pave the way for developing a novel material to replace vermiculite raw materials in agricultural applications.

    With this announcement, we are looking for a PhD student for the work-package #2 " Novel (bio-)mineral mixtures for civil engineering”. The aim of WP #2 is among others the development of the technique of microbially induced calcium carbonate precipitation for sandy soil bio-cementation purposes.

    Key responsibilities include:

  • Optimization of soil biocementation processes.
  • Analysis of geotechnical properties of soils.
  • Preparing and writing scientific articles for international journals.
  • Required documents:

  • Written application for the competition.
