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
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
With this announcement, we are looking for a Postdoc 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 (including development of technology and sequence of injection of bacterial and cementation solution).
Analysis of geotechnical properties of soils.
Conducting model biocementation studies in laboratory and/or field conditions.
Preparing and writing scientific articles for international journals.
Tracking current research trends in the scientific literature.
