Geoengineering and natural resources

Scientific activities in the fields of safety engineering and civil protection, raw and secondary materials engineering, petroleum engineering and fluid mechanics in porous media.

The research activities in the field of safety engineering and civil protection deal with health and safety, civil protection, risk analysis of construction sites in civil and mining industry, modeling, design, safety, control and environmental restoration of civil and mining sites, geostatistical modelling and study of advanced excavation techniques.

In the field of raw materials, focal points are the valorization of primary and secondary resources, including urban and industrial waste, as well as technologies aimed to the production of raw material and secondary materials from recycling processes.

As for hydrocarbons, groundwater and geothermal resources, research activities are addressed to the field of exploration and production (including safety and environmental issues), mono- and multi-phase flow in porous media, pollutant transport, protection of underground fluid resources and environmental remediation.
