GER Research Group

  Green Engineering and Resources is a Research Group formed by researchers from the University of Cantabria (Department of Chemistry and Process & Resource Engineering, ETSIIT).

Vision & Mission

  Integration of the technology, ecology, economics and social aspects in our teaching, research  and communication  activities with stakeholders to promote sustainable development and Green Engineering. We are involved in the use and application of strategies and practices related to knowledge management in an integrated framework of R&D&i teaching-real world applications promoting the decision-making process to solve problems in a context of international cooperation.


 We specifically address the synthesis, analysis, simulation and optimization of systems that include interconnectivity with available energy and material flows. These include design of waste valorization processes, application of lines of evidence for risk assessment and technical decision-making  processes.





  • Participation in the 1st International Cellulose Fibres Congress

    Dra. Tamara Llano from the GER research group of the Department of Chemistry and Process and resource Engineering has attended at the 1st International Cellulose Fibres Congress held in Cologne (Germany) and organized by the Nova Institute ( An overview of the global market of dissolving pulp, policies and strategies towards circular bioeconomy through new products and new technologies has been exposed. In this sense, pulping and fibre producers all over the world presented its last results on this topic and several solutions for textile fibres recycling.

    The work sent to the congress is entitled “Cellulose reactivity enhancement by TCF bleaching and DES treatment for viscose production” whose authors were Carlos Arce, Tamara Llano and Alberto Coz. The financing of this trip has been obtained from the "Europe Research" actions within the framework of the Spanish Plan for scientific and technical research and innovation 2017-2020 (Call 2019).
