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.





  • PhD dissertation of Marta Revilla Salas

    Last 3 November 2017, Marta Revilla Salas defended their Doctoral Thesis, entitled: “Analysis and modelling of a BAS (Biofilm Activated Sludge) process for the biological treatment of high organic load wastewaters with nutrient limited”. The Thesis with Industrial Mention and evaluated as Sobresaliente “Cum Laude”, has been developed in SNIACE-Torrelavega and supervised by Dra. Berta Galán Corta and Prof. Dr. Javier R. Viguri Fuente from GER Research Group.

    The evaluation committee chaired by Professor Ana Elias Saenz from the Bilbao Engineering School, UPV/EHU, Dr. Fernando Cortabitarte from Acciona Agua Company and the Associate Professor Gema Ruiz Gutierrez from QuIPRe Department, had the opportunity to visit the laboratories and dependencies of the GER group as well as to know their RT&D activities at the Industrial School of the UC.
