GER Research Group

  Green Engineering and Resources is a Research Group formed by researchers from the University of Cantabria (Department of Chemistry and Process & Resource Engineering, ETSIIT).

Vision & Mission

  Integration of the technology, ecology, economics and social aspects in our teaching, research  and communication  activities with stakeholders to promote sustainable development and Green Engineering. We are involved in the use and application of strategies and practices related to knowledge management in an integrated framework of R&D&i teaching-real world applications promoting the decision-making process to solve problems in a context of international cooperation.


 We specifically address the synthesis, analysis, simulation and optimization of systems that include interconnectivity with available energy and material flows. These include design of waste valorization processes, application of lines of evidence for risk assessment and technical decision-making  processes.




  • WASCON 2018 Conference participation and ISCOWA board

    Ana Andrés and Alberto Coz have participated actively in the WASCON 2018 Conference (10th International Conference on the Environmental and Technical Implications of Construction with Alternative Materials), in Tampere, Finland, from 6th to 8th June, 2018, organised by RIL and ISCOWA ( WASCON 2018 showed both the state of the art and the future developments in the field of the utilization of alternative materials in construction. In addition to fulfilling the most rigorous standards in its academic track, the conference also showed case hands-on industrial solutions from air to earth. Ana Andrés and Alberto Coz participated with four publications, one oral and three posters. In addition, both of them participated as chairperson in two different topics and Ana Andrés also collaborated in a workshop. ISCOWA is an international, non-profit organization which was formed in 1992 to promote and coordinate the exchange of information regarding the environmental and technical aspects of construction with industrial by-products. During the WASCON Conference, the new board of ISCOWA was chosen and Ana Andrés and Alberto Coz were elected. The main tasks to be carried out by Ana Andrés and Alberto Coz in ISCOWA during the next three years will be the Website content and coordination, and the sponsoring.
