We work on:

  • Air contamination control in the built environment (evaluation of material emissions, performance assessment of operating theatres and cleanrooms, performance assessment of air filters).
  • Recuperators, desiccant and evaporative cooling systems (development and test of desiccant wheels, air to air heat exchangers and indirect evaporative cooling systems).
  • HVAC systems testing and simulation (built environment monitoring, development and test of equipment through “hardware in the loop” platform).
  • Refrigeration and heat pumps (development and test of household refrigerators, heat pumps and solar assisted heat pumps).
  • Museum environment, climate and energy in cultural heritage (Modelling, test and monitoring of museum display cases, measurement of water adsorption and thermo-physical properties of materials).
