The Department of Environmental research focuses on challenge-oriented approach and solutions that bring together natural sciences, which underpin the understanding, development and application of technologies to deliver a sustainable future. The main focus is directed to the research of chemical compositions of non-refractory submicron aerosol particles using mass-spectrometry methods, the processes that control aerosol formation and evolution, as well as impacts of the changing atmospheric composition on air quality, human health, climate change and ecosystems.
The department of Environmental Research is also involved in creating and developing methods, experimental means and technologies for monitoring changes of climate and ecosystems as well as for creating safer and healthy environment. The Department is actively engaged in a wide range of topics covering the role and importance of aerosol science across a wide range of applied fields. By conducting fundamental and applied research, we work on long-term solutions for major challenges facing science, society and industry. The research studies aims to explore the developments in experimental techniques for aerosol studies with the ultimate goal of promoting development towards modern environmental-friendly technologies suitable in the vicinity of nuclear facilities and environmental science technologies based on radionuclide methods.


To develop and improve principles, means and technologies of the environment quality evaluation and to ensure the scientific competence in the field of the environmental physics and chemistry, environment contamination and climate changes.


  • Development of technologies and equipment for the environment protection quality control as well as methods and experimental basis in the environmental research, investigation of micro-admixture dynamics and balance in the environment components as well as for the characterization of the impact of the environment contamination on the climate change.
  • Evaluation of efficient instrumentation and assessment methods for characterization of the impact of industry, transport and consumer sector on the environment quality by combining of spectrometry methods of the aerosol particle mass and sizes as well as the investigation of physical-chemical aspects of the aerosol particle formation.
