Primary attention is dedicated for processes, which determine atmospheric aerosol particle formation, their transportation, chemical transformation and impact on global climate, evaluation of multiform pollution impact on health, environmental and ecosystems, development of implements to reduce atmospheric pollution.

To elevate scientific competence in environmental pollution and climate change research field and to employ a new methods for advanced technologies in environmental protection.


  • To dispense experimental indication search to interpret climate change causalities and outcomes employing methods for experimental spectrometry (optical and numerical particle size) and designing theoretical models.
  • To investigate aerosol formation, growth, transformation in distinctive aerosol formation zones and transformation dynamics and to implement air pollution monitoring.
  • Create and develop new fuel production technologies (emulsion and aerosol sprayers) and unmanned air pollution sensor systems to reduce air pollution of biomass and waste energy and to increase their efficiency.
  • Execute the EC Directives such as NEC and COP21, as well as estimate the critical environmental loads (S, N) dependence on the energy sector emissions and provide the assessment of methane and PM2.5 / PM10 emissions. 
Part of the laboratory investigations are carried out at the Preila Environmental pollution research station.
