The main areas of research go through the synthesis and study of the properties of nano and micro structured materials, recycling waste, corrosion and its prevention, biomaterials and functional coatings. Development of materials for more efficient energy systems is also a priority research area. Some of the products developed have been subject to patent licensing and every year about five patents in average are claimed.
