About Faculty

 ◳ DSC_0736 (jpg) → (výška 215px)The Faculty of Environmental Protection Technology (FTOP) focuses on the issue of environmental protection. In 2019, FTO gained 2nd place in the "Faculty of the year" in the Chemistry category.
When studying at FTOP, students focus on natural science and technical subjects, thanks to which they will not get lost in the scientific or industrial sphere. The common basis with all faculties in the bachelor's fields will give students a broad general knowledge in the field of chemistry and technology, extended by the subjects of their specialization. In subsequent master's programs, students already devote themselves to their field according to specific requirements and interests. Emphasis is placed on both theoretical knowledge and practical connections, whether in our laboratories or on practice in the industry.
It is also possible to teach the master's program in Sustainability and Environmental Engineering in English or international cooperation with other European universities on the master's program IMETE or a double doctorate with universities in Belgium and France.
Graduates of our faculty find employment in various branches of industry, for example, chemical or petrochemical, and a wide range of employment is also found in the field of environmental protection. We also have graduates in analytical laboratories, inspection and control bodies, state administration, and research. Last but not least, it is worth mentioning that they are employed in project and consulting organizations or as technologists, specialists, or environmental managers. Notable graduates include, for example, Milan Smrž, author and co-author of dozens of professional publications and patents and vice-president of the European association EUROSOLAR, which strives for the complete replacement of fossil and nuclear sources with renewable ones, or Miroslav Kos, co-author of a whole range of technological solutions for WWTPs in the Czech Republic, including the New Prague Water Line, completed in 2019.
The study is also closely linked to witnessing work at all institutes, and students have the opportunity to participate in the solution of grant projects, which are subsequently used or implemented in industry, ministries, further research or take place in cooperation with foreign institutions.

The Department of Sustainable Fuels and Green Chemistry

The Department of Sustainable Fuels and Green Chemistry focuses on several areas in its pedagogical and scientific-research activities. It deals with topics that currently resonate in public and professional discussion, such as: alternative fuels and biofuels, whether gaseous or liquid; implementation of green chemistry principles in the chemical industry or air protection and climate change. We focus in detail on the conversion of biomass and waste plastics into bio-liquids and their subsequent hydrogenation treatment, the development of heterogeneous catalysts, the application of hydrogen, biogas, and bio-methane in the gas industry, the capture of carbon dioxide in order to mitigate climate change and the monitoring of air pollution. Furthermore, at the department, we deal with innovations and optimizations in traditional areas, especially in oil technology and analysis.

Department of Water Technology and Environmental Engineering

deals with pedagogical and scientific-research activities in the field of drinking water treatment and wastewater treatment. During the course of study, students can participate in many research projects in the entire field of water technology: drinking water treatment, wastewater treatment, microbiology, energy production from wastewater and other materials, etc. terrain. The institute's activities are currently focused on current topics: reuse of water, reuse of materials and energy, use of information from wastewater, safe supply of drinking water, and digitalization of water management.

Department of Power Engineering

The scientific research activity can be divided into three basic areas of research: a) Corrosion and materials in the energy sector – research is focused on testing the corrosion behavior of new materials in existing and new energy technologies (refractory steels and alloys and their behavior in supercritical energy circuits, development protective layers for coating nuclear fuel (Accident Tolerant Fuel, etc.). b) Sorption processes and ion exchange in water treatment - applications are historically associated with the production of demineralized water for energy and industry. Professional interest gradually grew into the areas of environmental protection, hydrometallurgy, and the preparation of sorbents, their lifetime in real operating conditions. An example of the topics addressed is the removal of unwanted ions from contaminated sources of drinking water and waste and process waters. A lot of attention is paid especially to oxoanions and complex ions of toxic metals and semimetals. c) Energy and material use of biomass, alternative fuels, and waste - here the research is primarily focused on the thermochemical use of waste, solid alternative fuels, bio waste, biomass, and on the circular economy of products in energy, heating, and waste management. It mainly deals with current energy topics with the aim of greater use of renewable energy sources and alternative fuels and the issue of thermochemical conversions.

Department of Environmental Chemistry

as part of its pedagogical and research activities, it generally deals with current and very important issues of environmental protection. In a more detailed view, these activities can be divided into five areas of scope: technology for environmental protection, environmental sampling and analysis, toxicology and ecotoxicology, numerical simulation of environmental engineering processes, and environmental microbiology. The institute has spacious laboratories for practical teaching, modern equipment, qualified personnel, and traditionally excellent links with leading subjects from the institutional and applied sphere of technical environmental protection.

Department of Sustainability and Product Ecology

The pedagogical focus of the institute is based on the current social need to implement the principles of sustainability into practice. Our goal is to develop education in the field of sustainability, circular economy, product ecology, raw material safety, and other fields that are important for professionals focused on sustainability. The content of the professional and creative activities of the institute's employees is analytical work in the field of product and corporate sustainability. We conduct research focused on product ecology and ecodesign. Using analytical tools such as life cycle assessment (LCA) or material flow analysis (MFA), we determine the environmental aspects of products, services, technologies, and organizations.
