The Mexican Carbon Association invites to its Second Congress AMEXCarb 2017, from November 14-17,2017 at IPICYT, San Luis Potosi, Mexico. Dr Juan Matos Lale, senior researcher at the Biomaterials Department of UDT, will participate as a guest speaker.
UDT installs and starts up new technology of solar photoreactors to treat polluted water. One of the photoreactors performs oxidation of contaminating emerging molecules and pathogenic microorganisms, and the other is designed to reduce toxic metals.
A material with medical use, a biodegradable system for cloning trees and a process to obtain material for manufacturing insulating panels, were the UDT patent applications recognized in the first "UdeC Awards: Science with Impact".
New deadline: until September 5, 2017 remains open the call for students of doctoral programs in Chile and abroad, to conduct a stay in research in UDT, for a minimum of six months.
Two students will be selected for a research stay of 9 weeks from June 5 to August 4 at the North American college.
The patent holding the honor of being the 100th of our university corresponds to a reactor system and its process for producing bio-oil by ultra-fast pyrolysis of plant organic material. It was developed by Igor Wilkomirsky of the Faculty of Engineering in conjunction with the Technological Development Unit.
