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

Grant number: POIR.04.04.00-00-14E6/18
Funded by:

Foundation for Polish Science

Project description:
In the course of the FUNash project a series of functionalized materials produced based on the fly ashes generated during the burning of coal in electric power industry will be developed. Functionalized materials will be used in construction (cements and microbial biocements), agriculture (fertilizers and biostimulators/bioinhibitors) and environmental engineering (sorbents and bioproducts for remediation of polluted waters, soils and gasses). The R&D works will be conducted in a form of 6 complementary themes, and each topic will be implemented by a separate research team. As the result of the FUNash project, at least 19 products, 2 services and 4 technologies will be produced and offered to various branches of industry. Simultaneously, this will create the initial portfolio of the inter-unit (Polytechnic of Lublin + AGH University of Science and Technology + University of Warsaw) federation, which will provide services for industry and will implement a joint scientific and business model of self-development.
