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.
